We developed a global orientation coherence task for the assessment of global form processing along similar lines to the global motion coherence task. The task involved judgments of global orientation for an array of limited duration 1-D Gabors, some of which were signal (signal orientation) and some of which were noise (random orientation). We address two issues. First: Do motion and form global processing have similar dependencies? And second: Can global sensitivity be explained solely in terms of integrative function? While most dependencies (e.g., contrast, spatial scale, and field size) are similar for form and motion processing, there is a greater dependence on eccentricity for form processing. Sensitivity for global tasks involves more than just integration by filters broadly tuned for orientation. Results are best modeled by filters with narrowband orientation tuning that effectively segregate as well as integrate global information.
