In many ways visual processing acts as a prism,
splitting visual information from the retinal image
into separately processed visual features such as
colours, shapes, sizes, or orientations. Binding
refers to the set of cognitive and neural mechanisms

representation of the objects in the visual field. The
binding problem in vision refers to how this
