Paper Abstract

When we gaze upon a scene, our brains combine many types of locally ambiguous visual information to rapidly generate a globally unambiguous representation of form-and-color-in-depth. In contrast, many models of visual perception are specialized models which deal with only one type of information-for example, boundary, disparity, curvature, shading, color, or spatial frequency information. For such models, other types of signals are often contaminants, or noise elements, rather than cooperative sources of ambiguity-reducing information. This state of affairs raises the basic question: What new principles and mechanisms are needed to understand how multiple sources of visual information preattentively cooperate to generate a percept of 3-D form?
