Letter discrimination performance is degraded when a letter is presented within an apparent motion (AM) trajectory of a spot. This finding suggests that the internal representation of AM stimuli can… Expand
Positive mood enhances divergent but not convergent thinking
A positive mood enhances creative performance. We examined which type of creativity, divergent or convergent thinking, was enhanced by a positive mood. Half of the participants listened to happy… Expand
Spatiotemporal templates for detecting orientation-defined targets.
Using the classification image technique, the present experiments revealed several characteristics of human observers' spatiotemporal templates for the detection of orientation-defined targets. The… Expand
Exploration of vertical bias in perceptual completion of illusory contours: Threshold measures and response classification.
We investigated whether the perceptual completion of illusory contours exhibits a vertical bias (J. Pillow & N. Rubin, 2002). Experiments 1-3 measured completion with Pillow and Rubin's shape… Expand
Space and Time in Perception and Action: Conceptual influence on the flash-lag effect and representational momentum
When judging the position of a moving object, human observers do not perceive and memorize the moving object’s correct position. There are two known phenomena in judged position errors of a moving… Expand
Larger forward memory displacement in the direction of gravity
An observer's memory for the final position of a moving stimulus is shifted forward in the direction of its motion. Observers in an upright posture typically show a larger forward memory displacement… Expand

In the present study we modified the standard classification image method by subsampling visual stimuli to provide us with a technique capable of examining an individual's face-processing strategy in… Expand
Measuring Brain Activities Related to Understanding Using Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)
We examined brain activation in the frontal cortex during the contents understanding of comic stories with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). The present results showed that the left prefrontal lobe… Expand
Sound can enhance the suppression of visual target detection in apparent motion trajectory
Detection performance is impaired for a visual target presented in an apparent motion (AM) trajectory, and this AM interference weakens when orientation information is inconsistent between the target… Expand
Saccadic Compression of Rectangle and Kanizsa Figures: Now You See It, Now You Don't

Background Observers misperceive the location of points within a scene as compressed towards the goal of a saccade. However, recent studies suggest that saccadic compression does not occur for… Expand
