This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the rationale and purpose of the book, which takes the view that influences from the receptive field (RF) surround, which form the basis of perceptual completion and other forms of contextual perception, and under some circumstances can become the engine of a remapping of sensory space upon cortex. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords: receptive field; visual system; perception; sensory systems; perceptual completion
