The level of filling-in and when it is cognitive

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (6):758-758 (1998)
Abstract
This informative and conceptually stimulating target article is very useful. I merely query whether the term “illusory contours” is appropriate for gap filling; “illusory surfaces” seems better – and “fictional surfaces” better still. These seem to be rule based rather than knowledge based, suggesting indeed the importance of distinguishing rules (analogous to syntax in language) from knowledge (equivalent to semantics) for classifying perceptual phenomena.
