Neighboring contextual elements can dramatically affect the manner in which the brain processes the perceptual characteristics of an object. Indeed, many well-known visual illusions rely on misleading contextual cues to create misperceptions of size, length or orientation (e.g., in the Ebbinghaus, Muller-Lyer or rod-and-frame illusions, respectively). However, little is known about the brain regions underlying these integrative computations. The current study used fMRI to delineate the brain… CONTINUE READING
