The role of orientation and position in shape perception

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study investigates the contributions of position versus orientation information in shape perception by putting the two in conflict. Sampling the orientation of, e.g., a rounded pentagon and positioning the samples on a circle creates a stimulus in which element positions are consistent with a circle but element orientations with a pentagon.
