Abstract or Description

Neural correlates of illusory contour perception have been found in both the early and the higher visual areas. But the locus and the mechanism for its computation remain elusive. Psychophysical evidence provided in this issue of Neuron shows that perceptual contour completion is likely done in the early visual cortex in a cascade manner using horizontal connections.
