  • Some facilitatory effects of lorazepam on dynamic visual binding 

    Elliott, Mark (Springer, 2006)
    Rationale: The benzodiazepine lorazepam enhances the potential for inhibitory (GABAA) synapses in the cortex to stabilize postsynaptic, excitatory activity by synchronizing discharge rates at frequencies of around 40 Hz. ...
  • Structural imbalance and aesthetic preference in domestic chicks 

    Mulcahy, Paul; Elliott, Mark (The International Society for Psychophysics, 2010-10)
    In Arnheim¿s (1954/1974) theory of structural balance, an image is more aesthetically pleasing when it demonstrates balance between multiple internal sources of directed perceptual force. Areas of balance and preferred ...
  • Synchronization and stimulus timing: Implications for temporal models of visual information processing. 

    Elliott, Mark (Lawrence Erlbaum and Associates / Psychology Press (Taylor & Francis), 2004)
    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, ...
  • Synchronous information presented in 40-Hz flicker enhances visual feature binding 

    Elliott, Mark (Blackwell, 1998-01)
    Recent neurophysiological studies have encouraged speculation that the synchronization of spatially distributed neural assemblies (at around 40 Hz in the neocortex) is responsible for the binding of discrete stimulus ...
  • Temporal structure and inner psychophysics: A glimpse of equilibrium? 

    Elliott, Mark (The International Society for Psychophysics, 2010-10)
    It has been suggested that the synchronization of spatially distributed neural assemblies at fast frequencies in the range 20 - 80 Hz (the ¿gamma¿ band) is instrumental for binding the separate feature-elements of a figure ...
  • Temporal tolerance circumscribed 

    Elliott, Mark (Taylor & Francis, 2005-05)
    Chen's topological theory of perceptual organization includes the idea that equivalences in spatial organization and the organization of subjective experiences of time may be derived by means of common expression in terms ...
  • Visual field and task influence illusory figure responses 

    Elliott, Mark (Wiley, 2008-11)
    In normal viewing conditions, many objects are often hidden or occluded by others, therefore restricting the information that enters the eye. One ability that the human visual system has developed to compensate for this ...
  • The visual hallucinatory response to flickering polychromatic light. 

    Elliott, Mark (The International Society for Psychophysics, 2004)
    Our understanding of human visual perception generally rests on the assumption that conscious visual states represent, in some qualitative fashion, a complex interaction between spatially structured variations in the ambient ...
  • Visual perception in a snapshot 

    Elliott, Mark (Springer, 2006-04-14)
    To study visual perception in its sub-second scale of time continues to be timely: we have more unsolved puzzles than bits of a firm undisputable knowledge about how our perceptions are created in a snapshot of time. ...
