When two vertical rods move through a horizontal window in close succession, the Tandem Effect can be observed. It consists of a spatial illusion (distance between the rods looking smaller than it actually is) and a temporal illusion (under certain conditions both rods are seen simultaneously in...
Six experiments were conducted to test whether the spatial properties of cognitive maps constructed from verbal descriptions are similar to those of representations derived from visual experience. Data from spatial priming, distance comparison, and mental scanning experiments all suggest that...
Kellman and Shipley (1991) recently advanced a new theory to explain the perception of partly occluded objects and illusory figures. The theory is a formalization of the Gestalt law of good continuation. In this paper we describe their account of occlusion when the contour of the occluded is...
Occlusion phenomena raise two questions: (1) When will an occluding and a partly occluded object be seen, as opposed to several nonoverlapping objects? (2) What is seen behind the occluding object? Available theories give no satisfactory description of occlusion data. In our view, this situation...
The perceptual outcome and the motion-aftereffect duration generated by the rotation on the frontal plane of an ellipse with a bar depend on whether the bar is placed along the major or the minor axis. When the bar is placed along the minor axis, a stereokinetic transformation occurs, and the...
A very early student project undertaken by Friedrich Hegelmaier (1833–1906), published in German in 1852, is republished in English translation. Slight though the experimental work is, it nevertheless occupies a unique place in the history of experimental psychology. It is the source whence...
Three experiments are reported which investigated performance on a number of variants of the THOG problem. Collectively, these experiments indicated that subjects are more accurate (a) when the problem is phrased in a way that clearly separates the properties of the positive instance provided...
