Feature- and Face-Exchange Illusions: New Insights and Applications for the Study of the Binding Problem
The binding problem is a longstanding issue in vision science: i.e., how are humans able to maintain a relatively stable representation of objects and features even though the visual system processes many aspects of the ...
Asymmetric Effects of Luminance and Chrominance in the Watercolor Illusion
When bounded by a line of sufficient contrast, the desaturated hue of a colored line will spread over an enclosed area, an effect known as the watercolor illusion. The contrast of the two lines can be in luminance, ...
Real-world objects are more memorable than photographs of objects
(Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, 2014)
Research studies in psychology typically use two-dimensional (2D) images of objects as proxies for real-world three-dimensional (3D) stimuli. There are, however, a number of important differences between real objects and ...
Haptic Shape Processing in Visual Cortex
(Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2014)
Humans typically rely upon vision to identify object shape, but we can also recognize shape via touch (haptics). Our haptic shape recognition ability raises an intriguing question: To what extent do visual cortical shape ...
Inter-element orientation and distance influence the duration of persistent contour integration
Contour integration is a fundamental form of perceptual organization. We introduce a new method of studying the mechanisms responsible for contour integration. This method capitalizes on the perceptual persistence of ...
Hits and Misses: Leveraging tDCS to Advance Cognitive Research
The popularity of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques in basic, commercial, and applied settings grew tremendously over the last decade. Here, we focus on one popular neurostimulation method: transcranial direct ...
