Texture perception has frequently been studied using textures
constructed by repeated placement of micropatterns or texture
elements. Theories have been developed to explain the discriminability
of such textures in terms of specific features within the micropatterns
themselves. For example, Beck1,2
observed that a region filled with
vertical Ts is readily distinguished from one filled with tilted Ts but not
from one filled with vertical Ls. He attributed this to the different
distribution of oriented line segments preventing the former case but
not in the latter. However, Bergen and Julesz3
found that a region of
