When a part of an image is stabilized on the retina, the part fades to the same colour as its unstabilized surround. The apparent colour of an empty field is therefore assumed to be equal to the colour of its borders. Here, we will show that a similar phenomenon can take place even when the border of a centre field is still visible. A grey square patch with(More)
The mechanisms that produce simultaneous contrast have been thought to depend on retinal gain control and the retina is supposed to send signals to the brain only in terms of local-border contrast (Shapley, 1986). However, it was found that, when an object on a uniform background and border-concealing stimuli are presented to different eyes, the brightness(More)
During the course of the adaptation to left-right reversed vision, visually, evoked potentials (VEPs) were measured for a light flash presented on either side of a fixation. The VEP amplitudes and latencies changed drastically as the adaptation progressed. The time course of the change was quite different between occipital scalp loci. These results indicate(More)
Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were recorded during a visual search task to evaluate parallel and serial models of visual processing. A target stimulus elicited a discrete posterior negative wave in the 150-300 ms latency range. Furthermore, there was a close correlation between the search performance and the activity of the negative wave. When the target(More)
In a visual recognition task for random patterns, event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded concurrently with the behavioral performance. A prove stimulus, the feature of which was physically different from a sample stimuli to be memorized, elicited a posterior negative wave in the 220-280-ms latency range. Stimulus complexity and longer retention(More)
In a tone sequence of continuously ascending frequency or ascending intensity, a tone was occasionally repeated. The repeated tone elicited an anterior negative wave, the latency of which was comparable to the mismatch negativity. However, the amplitude of the negative wave was larger over the left hemisphere than over the right hemisphere. The negative(More)
