Existing computer programs designed to perform visual recognition of objects suffer from a basic weakness: the inability to spotlight regions in the image that potentially correspond to objects of interest. The brain's mechanisms of visual attention, elucidated by psychophysicists and neurophysiologists, may suggest a solution to the computer's problem of object recognition.
