An Information-Theory-like hypothesis recently proposed for early visual processing (the Minimal Local-Asperity hypothesis) accounts for the adaptive behavior with intensity of horizontal cells. It has been shown that for this to hold, the probability that a point is traversed by an occluding border must increase supralinearly (that is, with a positive second derivative) as a function of contrast. We test this condition by analyzing the distribution of contrasts and their relationship with… CONTINUE READING
