Hany Farid and Edward H. Adelson: Synchrony Does Not Promote Grouping
in Temporally Structured Displays
Nature Neuroscience,4(9):875-876, (2001)
It has been hypothesized that the human visual system can use temporal synchrony to bind image regions into unified objects as proposed in some neural models. We present experimental results from a new dynamic stimulus suggesting that previous evidence for this hypothesis can be explained with the well-established mechanisms of early visual processing, thus obviating the need to posit new synchrony sensitive grouping mechanisms.
