Previous experimental studies have provided evidence that closed contours are easier to detect than open contours in random-element displays, and previous theoretical studies have shown that these effects might be explained by an active neural mechanism (e.g., a "reverberating neural circuit") sensitive to closure. To test this hypothesis, detection thresholds were measured in five experiments designed to control for the effects of uncertainty, eccentricity, and element density. In four of the… CONTINUE READING
