Neural oscillations promoting perceptual stability and perceptual memory during bistable perception

Neural oscillations promoting perceptual stability and perceptual memory during bistable perception
Sci Rep. 2022 Feb 17;12(1):2760. doi: 10.1038/s41598-022-06570-4.ABSTRACTAmbiguous images elicit bistable perception, wherein periods of momentary perceptual stability are interrupted by sudden perceptual switches. When intermittently presented, ambiguous images trigger a perceptual memory trace in the intervening blank periods. Understanding the neural bases of perceptual stability and perceptual memory during bistable perception may hold clues for explaining the apparent stability of visual experience in the natural world, where ambiguous and fleeting images are prevalent. Motivated by recent work showing the involvement of the right inferior frontal gyrus (rIFG) in bistable perception, we conducted a transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) study with a ... read more
