Zhao et al. propose a model which develops perception and behavior in parallel.
Their motivation is the embodiment idea stating that perception and behavior develop in behaving animals ⇒
Disparity-selective cells in visual cortical neurons have preferred disparities of only a few degrees whereas disparity in natural environments ranges over tens of degrees.
The possible explanation offered by Zhao et al. assumes that animals actively keep disparity within a small range, during development, and therefore only selectivity for small disparity develops.⇒
Sensation refers to the change of state of the nervous system induced purely by a stimulus. Perception integrates sensation with experience and training.⇒
