This figure popped up in one of my lecture, and I thought it was a rather nice summary of how most theories of object recognition imagine that the process works (click for bigger version):

A bit easier to remember than your average boxes-and-arrows model, isn’t it! The traditional, functional box-and-arrow model is already being replaced by connectionist models, of course..

Psychologists will be scratching their heads, sweating over animation courses instead of programming languages.
