The link between object perception and neural activity in visual cortical areas is a problem of fundamental importance in neuroscience. We measured brain surface physiology with implanted electrocorticography (ECoG) electrodes in humans. Physiological responses to visual stimuli in object-specific ventral temporal loci are highly polymorphie in different cortical loci, for both broadband and raw potential trace changes. To address this, we developed a template-projection method, where averaged responses from a localizer task are projected into the continuous datastream recorded from the brain. These projections are used to build a feature space. A c1assifier for decoding visual perception is applied to this feature space du ring training periods, and is applied to plain images, as weil as noise masked images. This enables robust c1assification of visual perceptual state.
