Six experiments investigated the preattentive segregation of line-like patterns composed of discrete elements in a background of distractors. The results indicate that other factors in addition to spatial density influence line segregation. Edge alignment, edge length and principal axis orientation also affect line segregation. Differences in the outputs of Gabor filters fail to account for the perceived segregation of the lines. Possible models of line segregation based on element grouping, feature density and search are briefly discussed.
