Preattentive Texture Segmentation and Grouping by the Boundary Contour System
MetadataShow full item record
An improved Boundary Contour System (BCS) neural network model of preattentive vision is applied to two images that produce strong "pop-out" of emergent groupings in humans. In humans these images generate groupings collinear with or perpendicular to image contrasts. Analogous groupings occur in computer simulations of the model. Long-range cooperative and short-range competitive processes of the BCS dynamically form the stable groupings of texture regions in response to the images.
