We argue that some aspects of human spatial vision, particularly for textured patterns and scenes, can be described in terms of demodulation and predictive coding. Such nonlinear processes encode a pattern into local phasors that represent it completely as a modulation, in phase and amplitude, of a prediction associated with the image structure in some(More)
When we expect important stimuli at a particular spatial location, how does our perceptual sensitivity change over space? Subjects were cued to expect a target stimulus at one location and then required to perform one of the following tasks at that and three other locations: luminance detection, brightness discrimination, orientation discrimination, or form(More)
The mechanism by which visual-spatial attention affects the detection of faint signals has been the subject of considerable debate. It is well known that spatial cuing speeds signal detection. This may imply that attentional cuing modulates the processing of sensory information during detection or, alternatively, that cuing acts to create decision bias(More)
