The magnitude of the Ebbinghaus illusion has been reported to be greater when test element and context elements are figurally similar as opposed to figurally dissimilar. In the current investigation with 16 observers, illusion magnitude was greater for a figurally similar configuration even though the context elements of the figurally similar configuration(More)
A circle was attached to one of three lines which were changing in length and direction simultaneously. This configuration of moving lines had been found previously to induce the perception of depth. Of 26 observers 20 reported that the moving circle appeared smaller in size than a physically equal stationary circle which was located outside the changing,(More)
Many observers perceive depth when a configuration of nonconcentric circles is rotated on a disc. While it has been suggested by a number of investigators that motion parallax has a role in generating this phenomenon, the supporting data are equivocal. The current study proposed that the ambiguity regarding the role of motion parallax may have arisen(More)
Rapid, successive presentations of an eccentric circle pattern and its mirror-image elicited apparent depth and, as has been previously demonstrated for the Benussi effect, there was an increase in apparent depth with an increase in circle eccentricity. Taken together, these data were interpreted as contravening Wallach, Adams, and Weisz's account of the(More)
