The insufficient and often(More)
Mechanisms of explicit object recognition are often difficult to investigate and require stimuli with controlled features whose expression can be manipulated in a precise quantitative fashion. Here, we developed a novel method (called "Dots"), for generating visual stimuli, which is based on the progressive deformation of a regular lattice of dots, driven(More)
Introduction The ability of our visual system to categorize objects remains, to date, a challenging field of research. Most theories fall short at explaining how our visual system is able to find consistent visual solutions even under occluded conditions, to infer illusory shapes stemming from Gestalt rules, or to construct multiple interpretations in case(More)
