Abstract

Some evidence indicates that subjective contours arise when an observer organizes an ambiguous array into various depth planes because of implicit depth cues within the pattern. Two experiments were conducted to explore three-dimensional organization within subjective contour patterns. Although a size constancy scaling measurement technique produced data that were consistent with a depth hypothesis, more direct estimates of perceived depth produced contradictory evidence.
