We had shown that deep breathing had been able to effectively and timely alter visual and auditory bistable perception, see reference 1, 2. Deep breathing requires cognitive control, and therefore, in this study, we decide to investigated whether voluntary movements of human hands are able to govern the audiovisual perception using an integrative stimulus that's built up with the aforementioned visual and auditory stimuli. Astoundingly, when the human subjects moves the pen towards the actual

Reversed perception, namely, illusory motion reversals and illusory word appear when the pen is moved in the opposite direction of the actual motion. This might be because: the amount of the oxygenated hobgoblin red blood cells might be forcibly reduced in the sensory cortical areas during voluntary movements. Important to mention, cognitive actions' brain areas, namely, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, premotor cortex, and primary motor cortex may require high concentration of oxygenated hobgoblin red blood cells to achieve fulsome executive movements; and this could results in significant reduction of the concentrations of the oxygenated hobgoblin red blood cells in the visual and auditory cortices. Reductions that disallow one of two; the central versus the peripheral to work for both the visual and auditory cortices to work; and therefore, stoppage of bistable perception will occur. We thus hypothesis that the DLPFC may send signals to deactivate the peripheral areas in the sensory brain regions when the cognition action is harmonized with the actual material; but it may send a contrary signal to deactivate the central areas in the sensory brain regions when the cognition action and the actual material are disharmonized.
