Simultaneous progress in sensor and signal processing technologies stimulates the implementation of more refined pattern recognition systems in order to solve problems of increasing complexity. The progress on both technologies induced the implementation of the here presented framework for the fusion of infrared and color textural information. The framework is based on different aspects of the processing of visual information in the human brain. Some organizational principles of multisensorial information fusion in higher associative areas are also reflected in it. Preliminary results, realized in a simplified framework, show the validity of the biological-based approach in the resolution of multisensorial image fusion.
