I am not convinced that this is the final word. There are aspects of this illusion like persistence or predomiance of one type of rotation for some people, how frequently reversals take place, ratio of the relative lengths of each mode.. may have some thing to do with left brain or right brain.
A quick google search gives this reference.
From the abstract:
"This indicates that prestimulus activity in right inferior parietal cortex is associated with the perceptual change."
There seem to be many resarch papers on bistable vision and I do not know why specialist researchers in the area are not consulted.
