This means that, if the object is not seen until after it is released, the object recognition system interacts with the system that computes the trajectory of the object and the motor planning system in the brief period during which the object is perceived and the action planned and executed. One might expect that domains such as object recognition, trajectory estimation, and motor planning would be integrated, but integration of domains seems to be the general case.

Control Processes such as those described previously in the area of visual perception are subject to control. Control processes set goals, set criteria for success, deploy attention to input, choose operations to accomplish goals, plan sequences of operations and inhibit other sequences, and select responses.

Rather, they initiate, terminate, and enhance processes, such as those described previously, that do.
