Detection of regions of interest via the Pyramid Discrete Symmetry Transform
Pyramid computation has been introduced to design efficient vision algorithms ,  based on both top-down and bottom-up strategies. It has been also suggested by biological arguments that show a correspondence between pyramids architecture and the mammalian visual pathway, starting from the retina and ending in the deepest layers of the visual cortex.
