Visual Motion Retards Alternations between Conflicting Perceptual Interpretations

  title={Visual Motion Retards Alternations between Conflicting Perceptual Interpretations},
  author={Randolph Blake and Kenith V Sobel and Lee A. Gilroy},
When the visual system is faced with conflicting or ambiguous stimulus information, visual perception fluctuates over time. We found that perceptual alternations are slowed when inducing stimuli move within the visual field, constantly engaging fresh, unadapted neural tissue. During binocular rivalry, dominance durations were longer when rival figures moved compared to when they were stationary, yielding lower alternation rates. Rate was not reduced, however, when observers tracked the moving… CONTINUE READING
