Abstract
Bistable stimuli are one of the most popular approaches to studying the neural mechanism of conscious visual perception. Such stimuli contain conflicting information, which the visual system cannot integrate into a unified percept. This causes the perceptual state of the observer to change every few seconds between the two interpretations while the physical stimulus remains the same. Binocular rivalry is an example of such perceptual phenomena with ambiguity achieved by presenting one image to one eye and a different image to the other eye. Perceptual changes during binocular rivalry are particularly vivid, and closely resemble a physical image exchange.
