Many cells in the primary visual cortex respond differently when a stimulus is placed outside their classical receptive field (CRF) compared to the stimulus within the CRF alone, permitting integration of information at early levels in the visual processing stream that may play a key role in intermediate-level visual tasks, such a perceptual popout [11], contextual modulation [7, 3, 4], and junction detection [13, 3, 5] . In this paper we construct a computational model in programming
