Illusory contours where no contrast exists in the image can be seen between pairs of spatially separate but aligned inducing real contours defined either by pictorial cues (luminance contrasts or offset gratings), kinetic contrast, or binocular disparity contrast. In previous studies it has been shown that the detection of a thin luminous line is facilitated when the line is superimposed on illusory contours and the inducing flanking elements are defined by luminance contrast. By using a… CONTINUE READING
