Neurophysiological constraints on models of illusory contours

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Illusory contours can appear as interpolation between edges of the stimulus, as in the Kanizsa triangle, or run orthogonal to the inducing elements, as in the Ehrenstein illusion. Single-cell recordings from monkey visual cortex suggest that both are produced by the same mechanism. Neural border ownership coding, on the other hand, which shows a much larger range of context integration, might involve a different mechanism.
