How do visual luminance, shape, movement and depth information, initially processed separately in our visual cortices, bind together in the brain so that we perceive a coherent 3D object, all within a fraction of a second? Using simultaneous magneto-encephalographic (MEG) and electro-encephalographic (EEG) recording from the brain, Jiang and her collaborators in Magdeburg, Germany, found that perception of 3D objects perception elicits sequential activity in human brain as shown in the animation, with a key region for the assembly or "binding" of object features. This dynamic assembly in the human brain achieves coherent perception within 500 milliseconds.
