The segregation of visual scenes based on contour information is a fundamental process of early vision. Contours can be defined by simple cues, such as luminance, as well as by more complex cues, such as texture. Single-cell recording studies in monkeys suggest that the neural processing of complex contours starts as early as primary visual cortex. Additionally, lesion studies in monkeys indicate an important contribution of higher order areas to these processes. Using functional MRI, we have… CONTINUE READING
