Abstract. The detectability of pairs of flashed lines was investigated as a joint function of their separation in both space and time. In contrast to previous studies of contrast interactions as a function of either spatial or temporal separation alone, the predominant interaction is not lateral inhibition, but a delayed facilitation. A quantitative model based on probability summation between lateral-inhibitory detectors does not appear able to account for these results. Two related explanations are suggested: either a motion detection system or the nonlinear 'transient' subsystem is being tapped.
