Publisher's Summary:
Ambiguity in the mind is the result of cognitive multistability, the phenomenon in which an unchanging stimulus, usually visual, gives rise in the subject to an oscillating perceptual interpretation. The vase/face picture is one of the most famous examples. In this book, scientists from physics, biology, psychology, maths and computer science present recent progress in this area of cognitive science. Using the phenomenon of multistability as a paradigm, they seek to understand how meaning originates in the brain as a consequence of cognitive processes. New advances are achieved by applying concepts such as self-organization, chaos theory and complex systems to the latest results of psychological and neurophysical experiments.
