 +    and integrate feature items to group them into perceptual units 
 +    segregating them from other objects and the background. A 
 +    framework is discussed which explains how perceptual grouping at 
 +    early as well as higher-level cognitive stages may be implemented 
 +    in cortex. Different grouping mechanisms are implemented which are 
 +    attuned to basic features and feature combinations and mainly 
 +    evaluated along the forward sweep of stimulus processing. However, 
 +    due to limitations of local feature detection mechanisms ​and 
 +    inherent ambiguitiestop-down feedback is required to deliver 
 +    contextual information helping to disambiguate initial 
 +    measurements. Feedback ​of contextual information is demonstrated 
 +    to improve object recognition performance,​ stabilize learning of 
 +    object categories, ​and integrate multi-sensory representations. 
 +    The canonical principles of neural computation define a set of 
 +    core operations to implement above-mentioned mechanisms of 
 +    perceptual and cognitive inference. These operations can be 
 +    mappedin a simplified form, onto neuromorphic platforms to 
 +    emulate brain-like computation. It is demonstrated that an 
 +    architecture composed ​of canonical circuit mechanisms can be 
 +    mapped onto neuromorphic chip technology facilitating low-energy
