Image segmentation is a process that partitions image into regions which can correspond to 3D surfaces in the visual scene or parts of a 3D surface defined by texture or color. This chapter presents computational theories that perform image segmentation in terms of efficient encoding of regions, and also discusses some neurophysiological experiments which suggest the relevance of the function and mechanism of the primary visual cortex in image segmentation.

Keywords:   image segmentation, visual scene, computational theories, encoding, visual cortex
