A Theory of Illusory Lightness and Transparency in Monocular and Binocular Images: The Role of Contour Junctions
A theory of illusory transparency and lightness is described for monocular and binocular images containing X-, T- and I-contour junctions. This theory asserts that the geometric and luminanceExpand

Prevention of apoptotic neuronal death by GM1 ganglioside. Involvement of Trk neurotrophin receptors.
We have used serum-deprived cultures of wild type and genetically modified PC12 cells to investigate the molecular mechanisms by which monosialoganglioside (GM1) rescues neuronal cells from apoptoticExpand

  • Nature
  • 27 January 1994
MODELS of stereopsis typically assume that all the information about stereoscopic depth is contained in the disparity field, that is, the positional differences of image features that arise fromExpand

Toward a perceptual theory of transparency.
Theories of perceptual transparency have typically been developed within the context of a physical model that generates the percept of transparency (F. Metelli's episcotister model, 1974b). Here 2Expand

Image segmentation and lightness perception
The perception of surface albedo (lightness) is one of the most basic aspects of visual awareness. It is well known that the apparent lightness of a target depends on the context in which it isExpand

Image statistics do not explain the perception of gloss and lightness.
A fundamental problem in image analysis is to understand the nature of the computations and mechanisms that provide information about the material properties of surfaces. Information about aExpand

The Perception and Misperception of Specular Surface Reflectance
The amount and spectral content of the light reflected by most natural surfaces depends on the structure of the light field, the observer's viewing position, and 3D surface geometry, particularly forExpand

  • 1 October 2003
A theory is presented that explains how the visual system infers the lightness, opacity, and depth of surfaces from stereoscopic images. It is shown that the polarity and magnitude of image contrastExpand

Generative constraints on image cues for perceived gloss.
Image structure is generated by distinct physical sources that include 3-D surface geometry, surface reflectance, and the light field. A fundamental problem in midlevel vision involves understandingExpand
