This chapter begins with a review of behavioral evidence of associative learning in vision. It considers which types of associations can be learned, and then explores the properties and constraints of the mechanisms involved in such learning. It also discusses how visual processing can be facilitated by knowledge of associative relationships between objects. The second part of the chapter analyzes the neural mechanisms that support visual associative learning.
