Object recognition has attracted the attention of many researchers as it is considered as one of the most important problems in computer vision. Two main approaches have been utilized to develop object recognition solutions i.e. machine and biological vision. Many algorithms have been developed in machine vision. Recently, Biology has inspired computer scientist to map the features of the human and primate’s visual systems into computational models. Some of these models are based on the feedforward mechanism of information processing in cortex; however, the performance of these models has been affected by the increase of clutter in the scene. Another mechanism of information processing in cortex is called the feedback. This mechanism has also been mapped into computational models. However, the results were also not satisfying. In this paper an object recognition model based on the integration of the feedforward and feedback functions in the visual cortex is proposed.
