Abstract

Why is it relevant to analyze the role of incompleteness in illusory figure formation? Incompleteness probes the general problems of organization of the visual world and object segregation. The organization problem is one of the most important problems in visual neuroscience; namely: How and why are a very large numebr of unorganized elements of the retinal image combined, reduced, grouped and segregated to create visual objects? Within the problem of organizaiton, illusory figures are often considered to be one of the best examples to understand how and why the visual system segregates objects with a particular shape, color, and depth stratification. Understanding the role played by incompleteness in inducing illusory figures can thus be useful for understanding the principles of organization (the How) of perceptual forms and the more general logic of perception (the Why). To this purpose, incompletenss is here studied by analyzing its underlying organization principles and its inner logic.
