The role of pattern outline in bilateral symmetry detection with briefly flashed dot patterns.

Abstract

Experiment 1 demonstrates that, while the outline shapes of bilaterally symmetrical dot patterns play a role in symmetry detection, the removal of the outline by a surrounding random-dot annulus merely reduces performance by a fixed amount. It does not affect the relative salience of different symmetry-axis orientations. The converse is also true… (More)
