Abstract : Active vision is an essential part of every biological organism possessing an eye system: posture, eye movements, visual research, ... All require a motion percept to operate. At the basis of active vision lays the ability to calculate movements of objects in the scene, at least on a sufficient level to react correctly. In this report we present a model of motion integration and segmentation in the first visual cortex areas. Specifically we modeled the first two cortex areas involved in motion processing in the primate: V1 and MT. To be able to process motion correctly a visual system also need to deal with form information. We investigate how form cues coming from the ventral pathway can be used by the V1/MT dorsal pathway to solve some perception problems. By using a recurrent dynamical system between the V1 and MT layers we are able to find out psychophysical results such as motion integration and center-surround effects due to the feedback connections, or end-of-line and 2D features detectors thanks to the shunting inhibition. We propose to modulate this system by a form information coming from the ventral stream and are thus able to explain asymmetric center-surround effects as well as motion segmentation and segregation between extrinsic and intrinsic junctions.
