Experiments are described which indicate that the integration of high-precision shape information along a bright line is blocked by the presence of certain image features. All the features involved have three properties: (1) they are points where contours are not smooth (i.e. not twice differentiable) within the limits set by the finite space constants of visual processes; (2) they are all points that are emphasized in the responses of certain classes of circularly symmetric bandpass spatial filter; and (3) they are all significant for three-dimensional shape analysis. The results are interpreted as implying an inflexible segmentation of the contour image before detailed shape analysis.
