In the visual system, objects and object groupings may be initially coded in terms of physically separable attributes or features, representing differential spatial frequencies, orientations, colors, directions of motion, and so on, which in combination come to define wholistic perceptual representations. Although it has been known for some time that visuocortical neurons can display quite specific response preferences for particular features, it is only recently that evidence has been gathered concerning the mechanisms by which these specific neural representations might become combined or "bound" to form a unified representation.
