Visual feature binding via high-level scooping
Visual feature binding is one instance of a general issue in neuroscience - how the brain ties together information represented by different neural populations. Some assume that when we view an object, binding works like a zipper, linking temporally corresponding feature-selective activity to give us a unified percept of the object's features. Here, in the context of color and motion, I present psychophysical evidence against the zipper theory and against differential latencies for features. Binding for explicit perception in these experiments occur when a process like attention accesses the two features independently and with coarse temporal resolution. Instead of working like a zipper, binding is like a scoop reaching down from late, non-retinotopic
