The present study investigated brain mechanisms underlying the perception of illusory contours, using recordings of event-related potentials of the brain (ERPs) in right-handed individuals. Forty different stimuli were presented randomly 1600 times in foveal vision; twenty of them produced the perception of illusory contours of a Kanizsa square, the remaining were obtained rotating outwards the inducers and they did not produce any illusory percept.
