A vertical test line viewed together with an oblique inducing line appears to be tilted in the opposite direction (orientation contrast); a similar effect results from adapting to an oblique line before presenting the test line (tilt after-effect). The error in perceived orientation caused by a clockwise tilted inducing line may be partially cancelled by a second clockwise tilted inducing line; likewise, adapting to a configuration of two clockwise orientations gives weaker tilt after-effects… CONTINUE READING
