Figure–ground organization and the emergence of proto-objects in the visual cortex

Article English OPEN
von der Heydt, Rüdiger;

A long history of studies of perception has shown that the visual system organizes the incoming information early on, interpreting the 2D image in terms of a 3D world and producing a structure that provides perceptual continuity and enables object-based attention. Recor... View more
