We investigated, in two experiments, the discrimination of bilateral symmetry in vision and touch using four sets of unfamiliar displays. They varied in complexity from 3 to 30 turns. Two sets were 2-D flat forms (raised-line shapes and raised surfaces) while the other two were 3-D objects constructed by extending the 2-D shapes in height (short and tall objects). Experiment 1 showed that visual accuracy was excellent but latencies increased for raised-line shapes compared with 3-D objects… CONTINUE READING
