Intermediate-Level Visual Representations and the Construction of Surface Perception

  title={Intermediate-Level Visual Representations and the Construction of Surface Perception},
  author={Paul Sajda and Leif H. Finkel},
  journal={Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience},
Visual processing has often been divided into three stagesearly, intermediate, and high level vision, which roughly correspond to the sensation, perception, and cognition of the visual world. In this paper, we present a network-based model of intermediate-level vision that focuses on how surfaces might be represented in visual cortex. We propose a mechanism for representing surfaces through the establishment of ownershipa selective binding of contours and regions. The representation of… CONTINUE READING
