I'm looking for a term in the perception / cognition area of research.
I am looking for a word / term that addresses when the thing we are observing changes, such that the parts that signify the 'figure' and 'ground' are themselves switched. Is there a word for this? Does Ecological Psychology have a way that it organizes such stimuli?
I would think there may be a term that address when our perception 'flips' the perception of a static image, and afterward we are biased to perceive the 'ground' differently. This happens when we see a vase instead of faces.
But I don't know that word, nor do I know if it applies to the occurrence of when a thing/image/perceptual-field changes, in order to action the figure-ground reversal.
