  1. The Time of Consciousness and Vice Versa.Frank H. Durgin & Saul Sternberg - 2002 - Consciousness and Cognition 11 (2):284-290.
    The temporal granularity of consciousness may be far less fine than the real-time information processing mechanisms that underlie our sensitivity to small temporal differences. It is suggested that conscious time perception, like space perception, is subject to errors that belie a unitary underlying representation. E. R. Clay's concept of the “specious present,” an extended moment represented in consciousness, is suggested as an alternative to the more common notion of instantaneous experience that underlies much reasoning based on the “time of arrival” (...)

    The Tinkerbell Effect: Motion, Perception and Illusion.Frank H. Durgin - 2002 - Journal of Consciousness Studies 9 (5-6):88-101.
    A new motion illusion is discussed in relation to the idea of vision as a Grand Illusion. An experiment shows that this 'Tinkerbell effect' is a good example of a visual illusion supported by low-level stimulus information, but resulting from integration principles probably necessary for normal perception.

    An Ostrich on a Rock: Commentary on Christie and Barresi (2002).Frank H. Durgin - 2002 - Consciousness and Cognition 11 (2):366-371.
    There are problems with both the theoretical logic and the interpretation of data in Christie and Barresi's interesting article. The general pattern of results is easily incorporated into an information-processing framework compatible with Dennett's analysis. In particular, different aspects of the illusory motion event are queried at different times and these aspects are not in conflict, so no revision of conscious content is necessary. Second, too much interpretive weight is placed on an anomalous pair of data points that do not (...)

    Quasi-Modal Encounters of the Third Kind: The Filling-in of Visual Detail.Frank H. Durgin - 1998 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (6):756-757.
    Although Pessoa et al. imply that many aspects of the filling-in debate may be displaced by a regard for active vision, they remain loyal to naive neural reductionist explanations of certain pieces of psychophysical evidence. Alternative interpretations are provided for two specific examples and a new category of filling-in (of visual detail) is proposed.
