Effects of outline shape in object recognition

  title={Effects of outline shape in object recognition},
  author={William Gordon Hayward},
The use of outline shape in recognizing objects was investigated in four experiments. In Experiment 1, subjects matched a shaded image to either another shaded image or a silhouette. In Experiment 2, subjects initially named shaded images; later they named either shaded images or silhouettes. Performance in both experiments was predicted by changes in the outline shape of the stimuli. The same matching (Experiment 3) and priming (Experiment 4) paradigms were then used to investigate recognition… CONTINUE READING
