An Intuitive Explanation of Fourier Theory
Fourier’s theorem is used fairly extensively to design and simplify psychophysical experiments. Consequently, It is useful to understand some of the basic ideas behind it. Fourier theory states thatExpand

My Principal Papers : The Constructive Aspect of Visual Perception : A Gestalt Field Theory Principle of Visual Reification Suggests a Phase Conjugate Mirror Principle of Perceptual Computation
Many Gestalt illusions reveal a constructive, or generative aspect of perceptual processing where the experience contains more explicit spatial information than the visual stimulus on which it isExpand

Computational Implications of Gestalt Theory II: A Directed Diffusion to Model Collinear Illusory Contour Formation
In the first paper of this series a perceptual modeling approach was proposed to model the properties of illusory figures as a transformation from the information present in the stimulus to theExpand
