Hess and Dakin reported that normally-sighted subjects using peripheral vision (beyond 10 degrees ) were unable to detect paths of alternating-phase Gabors embedded within randomly positioned Gabors, but could detect same-phase paths. This result led them to propose a "fundamental difference" between central and peripheral visual processing. While we were able to replicate many of their results, our normally-sighted observers could detect alternating-phase paths beyond 10 degrees. We found that… CONTINUE READING
