Abstract. A study is reported of phenomena involved in perceptually unified organisation of a stationary chromatic pattern and a moving black outline or dot pattern. When the corners of the outline pattern were temporally oscillated on a stationary chromatic square, the chromatic border appeared to follow the moving outline, as if captured by it. This capture effect was also observed with moving dots: the chromatic border was defined by an imaginary line connecting the moving dots. Both capture effects occur over a region that becomes wider with increasing velocity ofthe oscillation. These observations suggest that the visual system effectively uses information frommoving features to define the shape of overlapping chromatic image regions.
