It has been hypothesized that the human visual system
can use temporal synchrony to bind image regions into uni-
fied objects1,2,3
, as proposed in some neural models4
. We
present experimental results from a new dynamic stimulus
suggesting that previous evidence for this hypothesis can
be explained with the well-established mechanisms of early
visual processing, thus obviating the need to posit new syn-
chrony sensitive grouping mechanisms (see also5
