Two objects or one? similarity rather than complexity determines objecthood when resolving dynamic input

Goodhew, Stephanie Catherine; Edwards, Mark; Boal, Hannah L.; Bell, Jason


The human brain is continuously confronted with dynamic visual input, and from this it must infer whether input belongs to a single versus multiple object identities across time. Object substitution masking (OSM), in which perception of a target stimulus is impaired by a temporally trailing 4-dot mask, reflects a failure to segment the target and mask as discrete objects.
