ABSTRACT Behavioural and neuroscience research just starts to unravel the intriguing nature of how visual information is processed into motor acts. The two visual system hypothesis suggests the processing of visual information into two distinct streams in the human brain. One dorsal stream dealing with online control of motor control and a ventral stream responsible for perception. However recent research shows increasing evidence for a needed interaction between the two streams. Anatomical studies give evidence of a significant connection between the two streams. Second, research of immediate and delayed grasping behaviour with fMRI measurements revealed communication between regions of the dorsal and ventral stream. Especially for (complex) controlled grasping behaviour, tool use and recognition interaction is needed to complete the processing of spatial information for visual motor control. This behaviour is not possible without involvement of structures of the ventral stream. The connections between the dorsal stream to and from lateral occipital complex (LOC) area of the ventral stream are an important region of focus and future research will give us new insights on this complex issue.
