Object recognition is the ability to perceive an object’s physical properties (such as shape, colour and texture) and apply semantic attributes to the object, which includes the understanding of its use, previous experience with the object and how it relates to others.

Progenitor of: multi-object localizer task
object recognition task has been asserted to measure the following CONCEPTS
as measured by the contrast:

DISORDERS associated with object recognition task
No associations have been added.

IMPLEMENTATIONS of object recognition task
No implementations have been added.
EXTERNAL DATASETS for object recognition task
No external datasets have been added.
No conditions have yet been associated.

Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.


In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.

No indicators have yet been associated.

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).
