Towards a Mathematical Theory of Cortical Micro-circuits

Reduced subjective contour effect.

When presented with a corrupted version of a Kanizsa rectangle, the HTM still recognizes a rectangle but with reduced certainty. Shown are the feed-forward and feedback inputs to a node analogous to Figure 15(C). The node is receiving feedback indicating the network expects an edge at this location, but the strength of this expectation is substantially reduced compared to a non-corrupted rectangle.
