How visual systems generate useful visual representations from fragmented static and moving visual stimuli has been a fundamental issue in perception science for at least acentury. Perceptual grouping transforms these incomplete and discontinuous stimuli intothe more complete and coherent boundary and surface representations that enable object attention, learning, recognition, and conscious awareness. This topical issue on perceptual grouping will include interdisciplinary contributions to understanding perceptual grouping from experiments in visual perception and neuroscience, and perceptual and neural modeling. Perceptual grouping contributions to understanding object form, motion, form-motion interactions, and attentional modulation are all welcome, among others. Of particular interest is how the neural circuits in visual cortex control emergent perceptual grouping properties, and how 2D images can give rise to 3D percepts.
