Edge-Assignment and Figure-Ground Segmentation in Short-Term Visual Matching.
Driver, Jon; Baylis, Gordon
Cognitive Psychology, v31 n3 p248-306 Dec 1996
Eight experiments involving 99 college students examined the role of edge-assignment in a contour matching task. Edge-matching performance was not based solely on a raw description of the edges themselves. Results suggest a pervasive tendency within the visual system to go beyond the edges toward figural shapes. (SLD)
