Gradient representation and perception in the early visual system—A novel account of Mach band formation

Abstract

Recent evidence suggests that object surfaces and their properties are represented at early stages in the visual system of primates. Most likely invariant surface properties are extracted to endow primates with robust object recognition capabilities. In real-world scenes, luminance gradients are often superimposed on surfaces. We argue that gradients should… (More)
