It was demonstrated with 7 observers that the duration of a high frequency tone was perceived to be longer than the duration of a low frequency tone, even though the actual duration of the two tones was equal.
When light intensity demarcating a 1-sec. interval was increased, there was an increase in the perceived duration of the interval. The increase in perceived duration occurred whether the light intensity was physically increased or perceptually increased through brightness enhancement.
Given two taps on the skin at the same position and a third tap some distance away, an observer reports the second tap as occurring at a position between the first and third taps. This is the saltation phenomenon, and as presented in this theoretical note, it is a phenomenon which is easily accommodated by a theoretical rotation of space-time axes.
A mathematical model for assimilation and contrast in the perception of extent is presented, and predictions generated from the model are empirically tested. Implications of the model for the Müller-Lyer illusion are dealt with explicitly, and implications of the model for the Delboeuf, Ebbinghaus, and other illusions of extent are discussed in general… (More)
Using a configuration of three lines joined like hands on a clockface, Brigner, Deni, and Hildreth in 1994 reported empirical support for Wallach, Adams, and Weisz's 1956 hypothesis regarding the elicitation of perceived depth by simultaneous changes in length and orientation of a configuration's elements. The current investigation extended these findings… (More)
Rapid, apparent, to-and-fro (right-left) rotation of the Necker cube sharply reduced reversals in depth for 10 undergraduates. This finding was considered consistent with the satiation theory of Necker cube reversals.
