Subjects decided whether 2 dots were on the same curve or 2 different curves, and the curvature of the curves or the proximity of other (distractor) curves to the target curve was varied. Response time increased as the arc length of the curve connecting the 2 dots increased, suggesting that the curve was traced to perform the task. Tracing rate was faster for low- than high-curvature contours and was increasingly slower as distractor contours were increasingly proximal to the traced curve… CONTINUE READING
