in·fe·ri·or tem·po·ral gy·rus

[TA]
a sagittal convolution on the inferolateral border of the temporal lobe of the cerebrum, separated from the middle temporal gyrus by the inferior temporal sulcus. On the inferior surface of the temporal lobe it is separated from the medial occipitotemporal gyrus by the occipitotemporal sulcus. It includes the lateral occipitotemporal gyrus.

Also dorsal stream is assumed to preform complementary spatial computation (where) and ventral stream for performing object recognition (what) in the cortical areas V1, V2, V4, and IT (inferotemporal cortex) along with current evidence in opposition to a complete segregation of where and what information in the brain of macaque (see [52, 53]) representing that information about position and size of objects is also represented in inferotemporal cortex of macaques as top layer of ventral stream.
More recent physiological experiments have provided a suggestive glimpse on how neurons in inferotemporal cortex (the area of the brain responsible for object recognition) can represent objects.
Dorsal stream is correspondingly supposed to preform spatial computation correspondences (where) and ventral stream regarding object recognition task (what) in the cortical areas of V4, V2, V1, and IT(inferotemporal cortex) accompanied by existing conflict evidence to a whole separation of "what" and "where" in macaque brain information (see [50, 51]) demonstrating about information for position and size of objects are similarly signified in macaques inferotemporal cortex.
