Abstract

It has been suggested that a neural instantiation of the temporary multidimensional representations of objects might be the synchrony of firing between the neurons representing the features they contain. In this work, we direct attention to a certain logical problem which arises when certain synchrony assumptions are applied to real situations in which repeated multidimensional objects are presented. Then we demonstrate a new behavioral effect that shows that this logical problem results in a genuine behavioral problem. Even when a display contains a small amount of multidimensional objects, their representation becomes difficult when according to our described assumptions the objects cannot be simultaneously synchronized.
