To obtain the representation of a contour, the visual system integrates fragments of a pattern. One of the `binding rules' governing this process requires that a path of conjunction in which contrast polarity is preserved be followed. Here we show that this rule has a corollary: where two alternative paths compete to emerge in opposite directions, the one with greater contrast luminance is likely to prevail.

Abstract

To obtain the representation of a contour, the visual system integrates fragments of a pattern. One of the `binding rules' governing this process requires that a path of conjunction in which contrast polarity is preserved be followed. Here we show that this rule has a corollary: where two alternative paths compete to emerge in opposite directions, the one with greater contrast luminance is likely to prevail.
