Abstract and Keywords
In this chapter, some essential characteristics of perceptual multistability in figure–ground organization are reviewed, including competition for border ownership, how ownership is settled at the global, configural level, how it is influenced by top-down feedback, and how it changes dynamically over time as a result of adaptation and recovery from adaptation. A computational model is described that explains these properties of human perceptual organization.
