Abstract
Given the great diversity of pathways into which the visual system signal splits after arriving at area V1, many researchers have proposed solutions to the 'binding problem' of reunifying the information after specialized processing. Most solutions require pathways to maintain synchrony and share information, which in turn requires some similarity of mechanisms and/or the spaces in which they operate. We examine the extent to which such similarity can occur between motion and color processing pathways, by using a multiple stage motion detection algorithm for processing color change. We first review the motion algorithm chosen, then we present a model for certain changes in hue, discuss the possible uses for such processes in the visual system, and present results of applying this model to both motion and color in this manner.
