    Abstract

    Dysfunction of the visual object recognition system in humans is briefly discussed and a basic connectionist model of visual object recognition is introduced. Experimentation in which two variants of this model are lesioned is undertaken. The results suggest that the well documented phenomenon of superordinate preservation is model independent. Differential category specific recognition deficits are also observed in this model, however these are sensitive to each particular variant.
