Combinations of some physically independent dimensions appear to fuse into a single perceptual attribute, whereas combinations of other dimensions leave the dimensions perceptually distinct. This apparent difference in the perceived distinctiveness of visual dimensions has previously been explained by the postulation of two types of internal representations -integral and separable. It is argued that apparent integrality, as well as its intermediate forms, can result from a single type of… CONTINUE READING
