How do we know where things are? We most often focus on how the brain encodes and recognizes what an object is, but the underlying code for where it is offers promising insights into functional architecture. In particular, an object’s location appears to be a construction on a high-level “map” where effects of object, eye, head, and body movements are discounted much like surface color is contructed by discounting the illuminant or even intentions by discounting the situation. For the coding of position, locations can be updated predictively to represent where targets are expected next, even before they get there. Recent results show that this discounting of object motion operates differently for action and for perception.
