Visual recognition typically involves integrating information

over space and time. I will describe our efforts to study

spatiotemporal integration in humans at the physiological,

behavioral and computational levels. In one of the studies

that I will describe, we examined recognition of partially

occluded images where interpretation requires integrating

information over space and extrapolating from partial

information. In the second study, we presented object parts

asynchronously and evaluated how this temporal

asynchrony affects visual recognition. Together with other

work in the field, these studies provide initial steps to

constrain the mechanisms by which visual representations

can be assembled via spatiotemporal integration.
