When observers view ambiguous visual stimuli, their perception will often alternate between the possible interpretations, a phenomenon termed perceptual rivalry [1]. To induce perceptual rivalry in the tactile domain, we developed a new tactile illusion, based on the visual apparent-motion quartet [2]. Pairs of 200 ms vibrotactile stimuli were applied to the finger pad at intervals separated by 300 ms. The location of each successive stimulus pair alternated between the opposing diagonal… Expand
Interactions between apparent motion rivalry in vision and touch
Introduction: In multistable perception, the brain alternates between several perceptual explanations of ambiguous sensory signals. Recent studies have demonstrated crossmodal interactions betweenExpand
Ambiguity in Tactile Apparent Motion Perception
TLDR
Increasing the tactile SAM’s AR biased perception towards vertical motion, but the effect was weak compared to the visual modality, and no horizontal disambiguation was found, even for very small tactile ARs. Expand
Perceptual rivalry with vibrotactile stimuli
TLDR
The results confirm that Levelt’s proposition II extends to tactile bistability, and that the stochastic characteristics of irregular perceptual alternations agree with non-tactile modalities. Expand
The Tactile Quartet: Comparing Ambiguous Apparent Motion in Tactile and Visual Stimuli
TLDR
A tactile quartet where vibrating tactors were attached to the thumbs and index fingers of both hands suggests a common computation for apparent motion, albeit with different built-in distance biases for separate modalities. Expand
Motion Aftereffects Transfer between Touch and Vision
TLDR
Crossmodal aftereffects, operating both from vision to touch and from touch to vision, present strong behavioral evidence that the processing of visual and tactile motion rely on shared representations that dynamically impact modality-specific perception. Expand
Remapping motion across modalities: tactile rotations influence visual motion judgments
TLDR
This study investigated to what extent rotating tactile stimulations on the hand affect directional visual motion judgments implicitly and without any spatial stimulus alignment, and shows that directional tactile cues and ambiguous visual motion cues are integrated, thus biasing the judgment of visually perceived motion. Expand
Interactions Between Apparent Motion Rivalry in Vision and Touch
TLDR
The results support Bayesian approaches to perceptual inference, in which the probability of a perceptual interpretation is determined by combining visual, tactile, or visuotactile evidence with modality-specific priors that depend on subjects’ attentional focus. Expand
Perceptual rivalry with vibrotactile stimuli
TLDR
This study aims to introduce a simple tactile stimulus capable of generating perceptual rivalry and explores whether general features of perceptual rivalry from other modalities extend to the tactile domain. Expand
Priming with real motion biases visual cortical response to bistable apparent motion
TLDR
It is found that a brief real motion stimulus transiently biased the cortical response to subsequent apparent motion toward the spatiotemporal pattern representing the real motion, contributing to the priming effect in bistable visual perception. Expand
Newly acquired audio-visual associations bias perception in binocular rivalry
TLDR
The data show that a rapidly acquired arbitrary audio‐visual association biases visual perception, and this effect can neither be explained by a pure attentional (dual‐task) effect, nor does it require a fixed physical or semantic relation between the auditory and visual stimulus. Expand

Human MST But Not MT Responds to Tactile Stimulation
TLDR
Evidence is offered for the existence of somatosensory responses in MST, but not MT, independent of imagery of visual motion, which is known to be a powerful activator of MT. Expand
Pursuit of the ineffable: perceptual and motor reversals during the tracking of apparent motion.
TLDR
It is found that subjects could smoothly track the apparent motion of illusory squares and also produce saccade-free reversals in pursuit velocity, suggesting that pursuit can provide a real-time readout for the state of motion perception. Expand
A Common Oscillator for Perceptual Rivalries?
TLDR
It is shown that the temporal pattern of disappearance and reappearance in motion-induced blindness (MIB) is highly correlated with the pattern of oscillation reported during binocular rivalry in the same individual, and it is concluded that MIB is a form of perceptual rivalry. Expand
Multi-Timescale Perceptual History Resolves Visual Ambiguity
TLDR
This work demonstrates a seconds-long influence of the latest percept, as well as a more persistent influence based on the relative proportion of dominance during a preceding period of at least one minute, which indicates independence between time scales. Expand
Voluntary Action Influences Visual Competition
TLDR
Self-generated actions can influence the resolution of perceptual conflict, even when the object being controlled falls outside of visual awareness. Expand
Ventral intraparietal area of the macaque: congruent visual and somatic response properties.
TLDR
The large proportion of bimodal tactile and visual neurons with congruent response properties in area VIP indicates that there are important functional differences between area VIP and other dorsal stream areas involved in the analysis of motion. Expand
Tactile motion activates the human middle temporal/V5 (MT/V5) complex
TLDR
In this subject, tactile motion produced a significant increase in rCBF that directly overlapped a region activated by visual motion at the posterior continuance of the inferior temporal sulcus, consistent with the known location of hMT/V5. Expand
Temporal Dynamics of Auditory and Visual Bistability Reveal Common Principles of Perceptual Organization
TLDR
This work compares the temporal dynamics of percept alternations observed during auditory streaming with those observed for visual plaids and the susceptibilities of both modalities to volitional control to indicate that auditory and visual alternations share common principles of perceptual bistability. Expand
Pupil dilation reflects perceptual selection and predicts subsequent stability in perceptual rivalry
TLDR
Pupils' pupil diameter is measured while subjects viewed different ambiguous visual and auditory stimuli to suggest that the LC–NE complex may play the same role in perceptual selection as in behavioral decision making. Expand
Perceptual Organization in Multistable Apparent Motion
TLDR
Using bistable apparent-motion displays to show that spatial induction effects in metastable motion displays may provide a particularly valuable probe for studying ‘laws’ of perceptual organization is presented. Expand
