Illusory conjunctions happen when features of one stimulus are mistaken for features of a stimulus in close relation for example, some participants see a green o and a red l but they commonly mistake seeing a green l and a red o researchers have found the illusory conjunctions are not strongly caused by spatial location, but one’s perceptual system often errs, borrowing attributes for a.

Illusory conjunctions occur more frequently within perceptual groups (prinzmetal, 1995), showing the influence of background structures (such as segments) that contain a degree of organization.
Illusory conjunctions are psychological effects in which participants combine features of two objects into one object there are visual illusory conjunctions, auditory illusory conjunctions, and illusory conjunctions produced by combinations of visual and tactile stimuli visual illusory conjunctions are thought to occur due to a lack of visual spatial attention, which depends on fixation and. Conjunctions (ics) could occur across modalities treisman and schmidt (1982) conducted the first experimental study of ics within vision they presented colored shapes flanked by numbers.
