Abstract: Explores two sources of inaccuracies originating from the use of local line detectors for inferring curve and boundary traces: (1) due to the position uncertainty of the local line detectors, ends of thin lines are not easily detected, even if cross-orientation inhibition is applied; and (2) due to the limited ability of the local line detectors to assess more global trace information gaps appear in the curve and boundary extracted. It is shown how a single EDANN (entropy drive artificial neural networks) module processing the orientation of illumination contrast compensates for these inaccuracies by performing a two-stage detection process, a competitive and a cooperative one. In the competitive stage, a vector field of tangents to curves and boundaries is extracted by using elongated receptive fields. In the cooperative stage, line-ends are extracted and boundary gaps are bridged by broadening the neuron's orientation tuning curves
