Объектные репрезентации и зрительные признаки: вклад в иллюзорные зрительные исчезновения
In motion-induced blindness (MIB) a salient target disappears from observer’s awareness when imposed on a moving mask. Competition between object representations of a target and a mask is one of possible explanations of the illusory disappearances (Bonneh, et al., 2001). But how many feature differences between the target and mask components would be sufficient to trigger the competition? We systematically changed type (color, shape or motion) and number of features distinguishing a target from a mask. It was shown that just one salient feature is enough to trigger competition between object representations. Difference in color between the mask and target influences on number of disappearances, while difference in such visual feature as motion affects duration of target disappearances.
