Hello to everyone !
A week ago, I asked for literature on the subject of object-recognition
in the human visual system. For everyone interested in this subject I 
compiled the answers I received. Here is the list:

Articles by John K. Tsotsos (tsotsos at vis.toronto.edu):

- Tsotsos, J.K., ``A `Complexity Level' Analysis of Vision'', Proceedings 
  of International Conference on Computer Vision: Human and Machine 
  Vision Workshop, London, England, June 1987. 

- Tsotsos, J.K., ``How Does Human Vision beat the Computational 
  Complexity of Visual Perception?'', in Computational Processes in 
  Human Vision: An Interdisciplinary Perspective'', ed. by Z. Pylyshyn, 
  Ablex Press, Norwood, NJ, pp. 286 - 338, 1988.

- Tsotsos, J.K, ``A `Complexity Level' Analysis of Immediate Vision'', 
  International Journal of Computer Vision, Marr Prize Special Issue, 
  Vol. 2, No. 1, p 303 - 320, Sept. 1988.

- Tsotsos, J., ``The Complexity of Perceptual Search Tasks'', Proc. 
  International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Detroit, 
  August, 1989, pp1571 - 1577.

- Tsotsos, J.K., ``Analyzing Vision at the Complexity Level'', Behavioral 
  and Brain Sciences 13-3, p423 - 445, 1990.

  commentaries),  p 458 - 469, 1990.

- Tsotsos, J.,  "Is Complexity Theory  appropriate for analysing 
  biological systems?", Behavioral and Brain Sciences,  continuing 
  commentary on P. Kube (to appear).

- Tsotsos, J.K., ``Image Understanding'', for The Encyclopedia of 
  Artificial Intelligence, Second Edition, ed. by S. Shapiro, John Wiley 
  and Sons (in press)

  Search", International Journal of Computer Vision, (to appear, issue 
  7-3 or 7-4).

  Tsotsos, J.K., ``Localizing Stimuli in a Sensory Field using an 
  Inhibitory Attentional Beam'', (submitted).

Articles by Grossberg ... :

- Stephen  Grossberg  &   Ennio Mingolla NEURAL  DYNAMICS  OF PERCEPTUAL
  Psychophysics (1985), 38 (2), 141-171.   This work presents the  BCS /
  FCS model   with  detailed psychophysical   motivation   for the model
  components and computer simulation of the BCS.

- Stephen  Grossberg  & Ennio   Mingolla   NEURAL   DYNAMICS OF  SURFACE
  Computer Vision,  Graphics  and Image  Processing (1987) 37,  116-165.
  This  model  extends the BCS  to explore  its response to gradients of
  illumination.  It is mentioned here because of an elegant modification
  of the second competitive stage that was utilized in our simulations.

- Stephen Grossberg &  Dejan Todorovic NEURAL  DYNAMICS  OF 1-D AND  2-D
  BRIGHTNESS PERCEPTION Perception and Psychophysics (1988) 43, 241-277.
  A beautifully  lucid summary  of BCS /  FCS  modules  with 1-D and 2-D
  computer  simulations  with  excellent  graphics  reproducing  several
  brightness   perception illusions.    This algorithm   dispenses  with
  boundary completion,  but in return  it  simulates  the FCS operation.

Articles by Steve Lehar (slehar at park.bu.edu):

  PROGRESS IN NEURAL NETWORKS volume 3 (Ed. by Ablex Publishing Corp.)
  In print.

  Proceedings of the SPIE, Vol. 1469  (Applications of Artificial Neural
  Networks Conference) April 1991.

  University,   Center   for  Adaptive   Systems   technical  report   #
S. Lehar also accepted to mail an article describing the work of Grossberg
and Mingolla and his own extensions to the model to everyone interested.
