Crowding, the difficulty in recognizing a letter flanked by other letters, has been explained as a lateral masking effect. The purpose of this study was to examine the spatial-frequency and contrast dependencies of crowding, and to compare them with the properties of pattern masking. In experiment 1, we measured contrast thresholds for identifying the middle letters in strings of three randomly chosen lower-case letters (trigrams), for a range of letter spacings. Letters were digitally filtered… CONTINUE READING
