Abstract The threshold for discrimination of relative position of two features in the fovea is lowest—a few sec of arc—when the two features are separated by 2–5′ arc. and is not significantly changed when the features are reduced to dots. Discrimination for lateral displacement, e.g. vernier acuity, is as good as for spatial intervals, e.g. the separation of two lines, dots or edges. Two widely-held concepts are thus found to lack validity: that averaging of local signs along lines or contours… Expand
