This image shows the ornate ceiling of Kings College Chape in Cambridge, UK: an interaction between regular columnar structure and the play of light coming through the stained glass windows creates a unique, ever-changing percept. This symbolizes how dynamical interactions between the regular structure of a visual cortical hypercolumn and ongoing neural variability underlie a probabilistic model of perception developed by Echeveste and colleagues. Image credit and design: Rodrigo Echeveste.
