Project is complete. A model of configural processing in which humans process global characteristics such as general shape first and then local characteristics like the fine details of a pattern is presented. The Blobloc model is a culmination of findings within the GRT and SFT methods and serves to connect physiologically plausible processing mechanisms with perception modeling. It can be adapted to account for learning effects. An experiment to test the model has been designed using sinusoidal grating patterns that vary in contrast in a single direction. The parameters of Blobloc allows for the direct comparison of feature-by-feature processing versus holistic or configural processing mechanisms by the human.
