My aim has been to understand the visual system at the level of its neurons and their interactions, because I think this is the level that holds the key to a quantitative understanding of the useful work our brains do for us. For tasks requiring the detection of regularity in random dot displays, this work can be measured by estimating the statistical efficiency with which the task can be performed when the amount of noise is deliberately varied by the experimenter. The same measure can be applied to psychophysical responses, to measured responses of single neurons, and also to computational models of how the neurons mediate the responses. For some tasks, otherwise plausible models cannot perform as well as single neurons and intact brains, and in these cases the models are proved wrong. This should lead to viable models of how neurons collaborate to detect the regularities, symmetries and suspicious coincidences that are required for intelligent cognitive judgments.
