Spatiotemporal patterns of cortical activation during the perceptual grouping of elements to form illusory shapes were estimated using anatomically constrained magnetoencephalography. Subjects were shown an array of Kanizsa-style figures which were either aligned to form illusory squares or misaligned so that no illusory contour or shape was perceived. Differential activity is more pronounced in the right hemisphere. After a weakly significant modulation at approximately 110 ms in the occipital… CONTINUE READING
