Classical texture segregation theory and current visual filtering models suggest that rapid texture segregation is determined by the properties of early cortical filtering. To examine this assumption, we manipulated the binocular disparity of texture elements (an L vs a bar) relative to adjoining squares. Such a manipulation has little effect on the early cortical filtered representations of the stimuli but can have a strong influence on surface representation. In particular, it can determine… CONTINUE READING
