Abstract

The nature of rivalry suppression was investigated by examining the effects of changing one of the rivalling stimuli at the beginning of its phases of suppression. The stimulus was an obliquelyoriented grating whose phase, spatial frequency and contrast could be changed without altering its mean luminance. Such changes were found to disturb the course of rivalry and, more specifically, to cause the reappearance of the stimulus within 20 msec. Suppression is thus shown to be selective and not to render the subject insensitive to all classes of stimulus change.
