Multistable Stimuli

Wikis > Glossary > Multistable Stimuli

Stimuli that 1) are open to more than one interpretation, and 2) these interpretations are not mutually compatible. The most famous examples of multistable stimuli come from vision, e.g., Rubin’s vase, or the Necker cube. However, multistability has also been shown in audition, in the form of bistable auditory streams and the verbal transformation effect.
