When you see a red ball rolling across the floor, the ball's redness, roundness and motion appear to be unified and inseparably bound together as features of the ball. But neurophysiological evidence indicates that visual features such as colour, shape and motion are processed in separate regions of the brain. Here we describe an illusion that exploits this separation, causing colour and motion to be recombined incorrectly while a stable stimulus is being viewed continuously.
