In the primate visual system relatively complex patterns such as curved shapes are first represented at intermediate levels of the ventral pathway. Furthermore, there is now evidence for the existence of curvature population coding in primate V4. We sought to determine whether similar encoding occurs in the human visual system by using a context-dependent lateral masking paradigm. In this paradigm a central closed contour comprising the test pattern is masked by surrounding larger or smaller… CONTINUE READING
