This volume examines the neuroscience of visual consciousness, drawing on the phenomenon of binocular rivalry. It provides overviews of brain structure and function, the visual system, and neuroscientific methodologies, and then focuses on binocular rivalry from multiple perspectives: historical, psychophysical, electrophysiological, brain-imaging, brain stimulation, clinical and computational, with a glimpse also into the future of research in this exciting field. This is the first collected volume on binocular rivalry in nearly a decade and will be of special interest to researchers, scholars and students in the vision sciences, and more broadly in the psychological and clinical sciences. In addition, it lays foundations for a forthcoming interdisciplinary volume in this series on the constitution of phenomenal consciousness, making it essential reading for anyone interested in the science and philosophy of consciousness.

“With the explosion of interest in binocular rivalry and its potential usefulness for studying visual consciousness, the time was ripe for a fresh overview of this fascinating form of perceptual bistability. Steven Miller and an all-star cast of authors have now provided that overview, giving us a set of chapters covering the binocular rivalry landscape with breadth and depth, including the intersections of perceptual psychophysics and neuroscience. To be sure, controversies remain to be settled, and this volume sets the agenda for the next round of the debate.”
“Binocular rivalry has proven to be an extremely powerful way of examining the perceptual and brain mechanisms associated with visual awareness. This new volume provides a timely update on the recent findings and enduring controversies that characterize the field. Steven Miller has assembled many of the world’s leading experts to construct an exciting and wide-ranging volume that everyone interested in how we perceive the world will want to read.”
