Observers saw 234 different pairs of stochastically organized dot patterns and indicated which of the two patterns appeared to be more numerous. All of the data can be accounted for by supposing that the choice of the more numerous pattern is based on the determination of the occupancy indices of both patterns. Each dot is posited to have an impact upon its(More)
This study deals with the observer's ability to discriminate the numerosity of two random dot-patterns irrespective of their relative size. One of these two patterns was a reference one that was always composed of 32 dots randomly distributed within a K x K invisible square window (K = 1.92 degrees). The second one was the test pattern with one of the five(More)
Numerosity discrimination was examined when items were varied in space-time position rather than in space only. Observers were instructed to indicate which of two adjacent streams of visual events contained more items. The precision of numerosity discrimination of dynamic events was not remarkably different from that of static patterns. Two basic numerosity(More)
