‘Texture segregation’ results from parallel processing in the visual cortex. It occurs when the stimulus contains spatial gradients within a visual dimension. We here present an introductory overview of the field, concentrating on electrophysiological correlates in the human EEG (‘tsVEPs’) of the neuronal processes underlying texture segregation. We describe the isolation of the tsVEP from the background EEG, give examples of the correlation between saliency and tsVEP amplitude and compare texture segregation between visual dimensions.
