My PhD project is aimed to carry out a study investigating the synergy between the information coming from the sensory systems of sight and touch in object discrimination tasks in Primates. The study is focused to assess whether visuo-tactile integration during manipulative actions facilitates the subsequent visual recognition of objects. The hypothesis is that tactile memory could be critical for the ability to visually recognise objects in the following encounters.
