  • Fechner's colors are induced by flickering monochromatic light 

    Elliott, Mark (Pabst Science Publishers, 2001)
    Fechner described the phenomenon of inducing illusory colors by means of rotating blackand- white disks. The induced spectral illusions were later termed "Fechner's colors". Similar color perceptions can be induced by ...
  • Modeling as part of perception: a hypothesis on the function of neural oscillations 

    Elliott, Mark (Pabst Science Publishers, 2001)
    We argue that the effectiveness of synchronization of oscillatory neural activities coding simple features, as it relates to perceptual organization, may originate in the temporal characteristics of resonance that develops ...
  • New measures of functional (but not perceptual) continuity in visual grouping 

    Elliott, Mark (International Society for Psychophysics, 2004)
    The benzodiazepine, Lorazepam enhances the efficiency of inhibitory GABA-A synapses in the cortex, which stabilize postsynaptic, excitatory activity by synchronizing their own discharges at around 40 Hz. Lorazepam treatment ...
  • Process timing and its relation to the perception of tonal harmony 

    Elliott, Mark (Editora Legis Summa Ltda, 2002)
    Recent advances in auditory research suggest that gamma-band synchronization of frequency-specific cortical loci could be responsible for the integration of pure tones (harmonics) into harmonic complex tones. Thus far, ...
  • Some effects of negative delays upon the perception of causal relatedness 

    Elliott, Mark (The International Society for Psychophysics, 2004)
    We examined the effects of negative delays on the perception of causality using a variation of the paradigm originated by Michotte (1954) and as an extension to similar work conducted by Kanizsa and Vicario (1968). In our ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
