Abstract. Binocular rivalry between a radially sectored and a concentrically circular pattern was investigated in three experiments. Motion of the circular pattern was either cyclical expansion and contraction with corresponding changes in spatial frequency (experiment 1), or outward motion with a constant linear velocity (experiment 2). When both patterns were static the circular pattern was visible for longer than the radial one. Motion of either pattern alone resulted in an increase in the predominance duration and the mean period for which the pattern was visible. This is at variance with Levelt's model of rivalry. In the third experiment, rivalry was between a static circular pattern and a radial pattern that could be rotated at different angular velocities. Again it was found that an increase in stimulus strength, as measured by predominance, led to an increase in the mean periods of visibility of the rotating pattern.
