Study Description

Contour integration is a key function of the visual system to deal with occlusion and discontinuity in natural scenes. The current study is the first one to investigate the genetic basis of this visual function in humans. A total of 2619 normal participants were tested on their ability to detect continuous contours embedded in a cluttered background with a standard psychophysical protocol. Multi-level genomic analysis was performed, involving heritability estimation based on single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and association testing at SNP and gene levels.
