No evidence for neural filling-in – vision as an illusion – pinning down “enaction”

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (6):767-768 (1998)

Abstract
(1) The purported evidence for neural filling-in is not evidence for filling-in, but just for long-range dynamic interactions. (2) Vision is perhaps not an “illusion,” but at any rate it is not “pictorial.” (3) The idea of the “world as an outside memory” as well as MacKay's “conditional readiness for action” may help approach an “enactive” theory of vision.
