Binocular rivalry is a powerful tool for studying the neural correlates of visual attention and perception. When two stimuli are presented dichoptically in a controlled setting, people report seeing one dominant percept at a time rather than a combination of the two stimuli. In a MEG study, I show that pre-stimulus connectivity patterns in category-sensitive brain regions, as seen by frequency-resolved graph theoretic measures and source-reconstruction, could predict participants’ percept of a face or a house at the onset of binocular rivalry. Additionally the percept can be very reliably decoded from post-stimulus evoked responses.
