The salience of a transformation between a pair of contours depends on the type of transformation (eg a reflection or a translation) and also on figure-ground organisation. Reflection is most salient when both contours belong to the same surface, and translation is most salient when they do not connect a surface. These findings are based on reaction time (RT). Here I replicate and extend them by measuring both RT and sensitivity. The figure-ground relations were changed unambiguously by using… CONTINUE READING
