Inter-element orientation and distance influence the duration of persistent contour integration
Contour integration is a fundamental form of perceptual organization. We introduce a new method of studying the mechanisms responsible for contour integration. This method capitalizes on the perceptual persistence of ...
The lemon illusion: seeing curvature where there is none
Curvature is a highly informative visual cue for shape perception and object recognition. We introduce a novel illusion—the Lemon Illusion—in which subtle illusory curvature is perceived along contour regions that are ...
The Dynamic Ebbinghaus: motion dynamics greatly enhance the classic contextual size illusion
The Ebbinghaus illusion is a classic example of the influence of a contextual surround on the perceived size of an object. Here, we introduce a novel variant of this illusion called the Dynamic Ebbinghaus illusion in which ...
On the Legibility of Mirror-Reflected and Rotated Text
We happened to observe that text that was reflected about either the horizontal or vertical axis was more difficult to read than text that was reflected about first one and then the other, which amounts to a 180-degree ...
Distinct effects of contour smoothness and observer bias on visual persistence
Stable object perception relies on persistent yet temporary neural representations under constantly fluctuating stimulus conditions. The mechanisms by which such representations are formed and maintained are not fully ...
