It is difficult to separate objects from background by means of thresholding, in conditions of poor and nonuniform illumination. In this paper, we present a neuralcomputing approach for image segmentation via adaptive thresholding. The thresholding surface is calculated by interpolating the image gray levels at points where the Laplacian is high, indicating probable object edges. The interpolation in the image plane is completed by Hopfield neural network. In the experiments, we show that our method is better than the global thresholding method.
