Stimulus similarity modulates competitive interactions in human visual cortex

Diane M. Beck, Sabine Kastner
2007 Journal of Vision  
Using fMRI, we asked whether competitive interactions might also be modulated by other bottom-up factors and tested the effects of stimulus similarity.  ...  Previous research has shown that these suppressive interactions can be biased by top-down influences such as spatially directed attention, as well as by the bottom-up factor of visual salience.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported by grants from the National Institutes of Mental Health (RO1 MH-64043, P50 MH-62196) and the Whitehall Foundation.  ...

Stimulus context modulates competition in human extrastriate cortex

Diane M Beck, Sabine Kastner
2005 Nature Neuroscience  
The pop-out effects seemed to originate in early visual cortex and were independent of attentional top-down control, suggesting that stimulus context may provide a powerful influence on neural competition  ...  The biased competition model of selective attention predicts that the competition can be influenced by both top-down and bottom-up mechanisms.  ...  effect of stimulus context related to visual salience.  ...

Cortical Surround Interactions and Perceptual Salience via Natural Scene Statistics

Ruben Coen-Cagli, Peter Dayan, Odelia Schwartz, Olaf Sporns
2012 PLoS Computational Biology  
A main novelty in our model is that the influence of the context on a target stimulus is determined by their degree of statistical dependence.  ...  We optimized the parameters of the model on natural image patches, and then simulated neural and perceptual responses on stimuli used in classical experiments.  ...  Williams, and L.

Modeling Bottom-Up and Top-Down Attention with a Neurodynamic Model of V1 [article]

David Berga, Xavier Otazu
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Previous studies suggested that lateral interactions of V1 cells are responsible, among other visual effects, of bottom-up visual attention (alternatively named visual salience or saliency).  ...  Novel computational definitions of top-down inhibition (in terms of inhibition of return and selection mechanisms), are also proposed to predict attention in Free-Viewing and Visual Search tasks.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitivity (DPI2017-89867-C2-1-R), Agencia de Gestió d'Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca (AGAUR) (2017-SGR-649), and CERCA  ...

More than Mere Colouring: The Role of Spectral Information in Human Vision

K. A. Akins, M. Hahn

We suggest that there is no single 'advantage' to trichromaticity but a multiplicity, only one of which is the ability to see surfaces and so on as having categorical colours.  ...  We then ask about the role of wavelength information in vision writ large.  ...  Acknowledgements We gratefully acknowledge the unflagging support of the James S.  ...
