Abstract: This is supplemental material for the eight cognitive models and forty two tests of a thesis named “A Unified Cognitive Model of Visual Filling-In Based on an Emergic Network Architecture”. This supplement contains detailed information about computational test subjects, stimuli, and results. The thesis contains extracts from the information contained herein. The models and tests are listed in the same order as in the thesis and with the same chapter/appendix identifiers.
For both computational subject and stimuli details, the appropriate parameter files are shown. These are fully described within the Emergic Simulation System portion of the thesis. The test results are available online in an animated format (Leibovitz, 2012a) that is ideal for exhibiting qualitative behaviour. It is an extremely compact format (one web page for each of the eight computational models), and has a few additional test results. It is available at
This supplement merely extracts the animated results into a frame-by-frame account with precise timing information suitable for quantitative analysis and print publication. The thesis contains extracts of these frame-by-frame accounts.
The animated results contain an extra Photoreceptor Changes column that is not ordinarily shown in the thesis or supplement as it is not yet part of our cognitive theory. It demonstrates temporal edge detection and is merely the absolute difference in a photoreceptor’s activation between two time ticks.
