Here, the temporal characteristics of the contextual effect were examined for the same stimuli. In experiment 1, the contextual shift size increased with increasing context rate while being largely independent of ISI.
These results suggest that contextual plasticity is an adaptation driven both by low-level factors like spatiotemporal context distribution and higher-level factors like perceptual similarity between the stimuli, possibly related to precedence buildup.
