Visual and Hedonic Perception of Food Stimuli in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their Relationship to Food Neophobia.

Perception 2019 Feb 13:301006619828300. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Research Center in Neurosciences of Lyon, Claude Bernard University Lyon 1, France.

The present study examined whether children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typically developing (TD) children differed in visual perception of food stimuli at both sensorimotor and affective levels. A potential link between visual perception and food neophobia was also investigated. To these aims, 11 children with ASD and 11 TD children were tested. Read More

The Neon Fruit Illusion: A Fresh Recipe for Colour Science Demonstrations.

Perception 2019 Feb 7:301006618824484. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, UK.

At this year's European Conference on Visual Perception, we debuted a novel colour science demonstration-and visual illusion-for the Un mare di illusioni exhibition. Under carefully curated lighting conditions, cycling through different illuminant spectra, certain fruits and vegetables appear to glow and dim in an unchanging environment. Encouraged by the positive reactions it received, and the numerous and specific questions from conference delegates, we here describe what this illusion is, why we believe it may work, and how this particular low-cost setup may be assembled and demonstrated for the amazement of your friends, students, and members of the public.

Spatial Frequency Thresholds for Detecting Latent Facial Signals of Threat.

Perception 2019 Feb 6:301006619828254. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Brandon University, Canada.

This study examined whether latent facial signals of threat can be detected at more extreme ranges of spatial frequencies (SFs), and thus with fewer frequencies from an optimal middle band for face identification, compared with latent nonthreatening facial signals. Using an adaptive staircase procedure and a two-interval forced-choice same-different task, SF thresholds from the lower and higher ends of the SF spectrum were obtained for nonexpressive threatening and nonthreatening faces. Threatening faces were discriminated from neutral faces more quickly and accurately, and engendered more extreme SF thresholds, compared with nonthreatening faces. Read More

Early Attentional Capture of Animate Motion: 4-Year-Olds Show a Pop-Out Effect for Chasing Stimuli.

Perception 2019 Feb 6:301006619828256. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Preferential attention to animate motion develops early in life, and adults and infants are particularly attuned to chasing motion. Adults can detect chasing objects among up to 10 distractors and are better at detecting a chase among nonchasing distractors than a nonchase among chasing distractors. We tested whether an attentional preference for chasing has developed by the age of 4, and whether 4-year-olds can explicitly point out chasing objects. Read More

Contact Is in the Eye of the Beholder: The Eye Contact Illusion.

Perception 2019 Feb 4:301006619827486. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Medical and Health Sciences, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia.

In a simple experiment, we demonstrate that you don't need to mindfully look at the eyes of your audience to be perceived as making eye contact during face-to-face conversation. Simply gazing somewhere around the face/head area will suffice. Or to borrow a term from Mareschal and colleagues, direct gaze will suffice. Read More

The Upper Eye Bias: Rotated Faces Draw Fixations to the Upper Eye.

Perception 2018 Dec 27:301006618819628. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Psychology, University of California, Santa Cruz, CA, USA.

There is a consistent left-gaze bias when observers fixate upright faces, but it is unknown how this bias manifests in rotated faces, where the two eyes appear at different heights on the face. In two eye-tracking experiments, we measured participants' first and second fixations, while they judged the expressions of upright and rotated faces. We hypothesized that rotated faces might elicit a bias to fixate the upper eye. Read More

Beauty Is in the Eye of the Beholder: The Appraisal of Facial Attractiveness and Its Relation to Conscious Awareness.

Perception 2018 Dec 19:301006618813035. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

School of Psychology, University of Nottingham, UK.

Previous research suggests that facial attractiveness relies on features such as symmetry, averageness and above-average sexual dimorphic characteristics. Due to the evolutionary and sociobiological value of these characteristics, it has been suggested that attractiveness can be processed in the absence of conscious awareness. This raises the possibility that attractiveness can also be appraised without conscious awareness. Read More

The role of Peripheral Vision in the Flashed Face Distortion Effect.

Perception 2018 Dec 19:301006618817419. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK.

The flashed face distortion effect is a phenomenon whereby images of faces, presented at 4-5 Hz in the visual periphery, appear distorted. It has been hypothesized that the effect is driven by cortical, rather than retinal, components. Here, we investigated the role of peripheral viewing on the effect. Read More

The Effects of Blur and Inversion on the Recognition of Ambient Face Images.

Perception 2018 Dec 8:301006618812581. Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Center for Visual and Cognitive Neuroscience, Department of Psychology, North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND, USA.

When viewing unfamiliar faces that vary in expressions, angles, and image quality, observers make many recognition errors. Specifically, in unconstrained identity-sorting tasks, observers struggle to cope with variation across different images of the same person while succeeding at telling different people apart. The use of ambient face images in this simple card-sorting task reveals the magnitude of these face recognition errors and suggests a useful platform to reexamine the nature of face processing using naturalistic stimuli.

Avatars in Pain: Visible Harm Enhances Mind Perception in Humans and Robots.

Perception 2018 Nov 9:301006618809919. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

University of Bremen, Germany.

Previous research has shown that when people read vignettes about the infliction of harm upon an entity appearing to have no more than a liminal mind, their attributions of mind to that entity increased. Currently, we investigated if the presence of a facial wound enhanced the perception of mental capacities (experience and agency) in response to images of robotic and human-like avatars, compared with unharmed avatars. The results revealed that harmed versions of both robotic and human-like avatars were imbued with mind to a higher degree, irrespective of the baseline level of mind attributed to their unharmed counterparts.

Doppler Illusion Prevails Over Pratt Effect in Risset Tones.

Perception 2018 Nov 7:301006618807338. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

University of Aizu, Aizu-Wakamatsu, Japan.

Changes in frequency such as those found in Risset tones have been associated with moving sound sources in the vertical plane (Pratt effect) and the horizontal plane (Doppler illusion). We investigated the reported origin and motion of unspatialized Risset tones presented monotically and diotically, and Risset tones simulated to be in the sagittal or coronal plane, approaching or receding, from above or horizontally. Independent of the artificial spatialization used (none, spatializing frequency components collectively or individually, elevated or not), upward glissandi were more likely to be judged as approaching than receding, and downward glissandi as receding than approaching, in most cases from the horizon.

Midori Takashima

Perception 2018 Oct 23:301006618808937. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Iwaki Meisei University, Iwaki City, Japan.

This study examined whether auditory pitch and loudness affect the perception of object's weight. Two series experiments showed that the object with High-Pitch sound was perceived as being lighter than the object with Low-Pitch sound and that the perceived weight was not affected by loudness. Because auditory pitch has a relationship to the weight of an object while loudness has a relationship to the distance of a placed object, the perceived weight was affected by auditory pitch not loudness.

BKC Research Organization of Social Sciences, Ritsumeikan University, Shiga, Japan; Yoshika Institute of Psychology, Shimane, Japan.

When we hold thin metallic bars between the palms of our hands and rub the palms against each other, the feeling of touching smooth velvet occurs. Previous studies have shown that tactile motion and pressure on the palms are important for this velvet hand illusion. Interestingly, when we experience this illusion, we cannot feel the texture of our palms as we usually do. Read More

Autistic Traits in the Neurotypical Population do not Predict Increased Response Conservativeness in Perceptual Decision Making.

Perception 2018 Oct-Nov;47(10-11):1081-1096. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Psychology, The University of Sheffield, UK.

Recent research has shown that adults and children with autism spectrum disorders have a more conservative decision criterion in perceptual decision making compared to neurotypical individuals, meaning that autistic participants prioritise accuracy over speed of a decision. Here, we test whether autistic traits in the neurotypical population correlate with increased response conservativeness. We employed three different tasks; for two tasks we recruited participants from China ( N = 39) and for one task from the United Kingdom ( N = 37). Read More

Department of Psychology, University of York, UK.

First impressions from faces emerge quickly and shape subsequent behaviour. Given that different pictures of the same face evoke different impressions, we asked whether presentation order affects the overall impression of the person. In three experiments, we presented naturally varying photos of a person's face in ascending (low-to-high) or descending (high-to-low) order of attractiveness. Read More

Perception of Affordances for Stepping Over an Expanse With Crutches.

Perception 2018 Oct-Nov;47(10-11):1106-1109. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

School of Kinesiology and Recreation, Illinois State University, Normal, IL, USA.

Perception of possibilities for behavior reflects the task-specific fit between action capabilities and environmental properties. We investigated whether this is so for a behavior that requires spontaneously and temporarily coordinating anatomical components and inert objects into a person-plus-object action system-stepping over an expanse with crutches. We found that perception of this affordance (a) scaled to an anthropometric property of primary relevance to performing this behavior (leg length), (b) reflected the ability to perform this behavior, and that (c) variability in perception decreased with practice perceiving this affordance.

Adults' Markers of Face Processing Are Present at Age 6 and Are Interconnected Along Development.

Perception 2018 Oct-Nov;47(10-11):1002-1028. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Department of Special Education, Edmond J. Safra Brain Research Center, University of Haifa, Israel.

Recent studies on the development of face processing argue for a late, quantitative, domain-specific development of face processing, and face memory in particular. Most previous findings were based on separately tracking the developmental course of face perception skills, comparing performance across different age groups. Here, we adopted a different approach studying the mechanisms underlying the development of face processing by focusing on how different face skills are interrelated over the years (age 6 to adulthood).

Becoming Familiar With a Newly Encountered Face: Evidence of an Own-Race Advantage.

Perception 2018 Aug;47(8):807-820

Department of Psychology, Brock University, St Catharines, Canada.

Adults' ability to match identity in images of unfamiliar faces is impaired for other- compared with own-race faces; their ability to match identity in images of familiar faces is independent of face race. Exposure to within-person variability in appearance plays a key role in face learning. Past research suggests that children need exposure to higher levels of variability than adults to learn a new face-a difference that has been attributed to experience. Read More

School of Psychology, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.

We examined the attention and inference accounts of audiovisual perception using the stream/bounce display, a visual stimulus wherein two identical objects move toward each other, completely superimpose, then move apart. This display has two candidate percepts: stream past each other or bounce off each other. Presented without additional visual or auditory transients, the motion sequence tends to yield the streaming percept, but when coupled with a tone or flash at the point of coincidence, the response bias flips toward bouncing.

School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, Psychology, Queen Mary University of London, UK.

While personality has typically been considered to influence gaze behaviour, literature relating to the topic is mixed. Previously, we found no evidence of self-reported personality traits on preferred gaze duration between a participant and a person looking at them via a video. In this study, 77 of the original participants answered an in-depth follow-up survey containing a more comprehensive assessment of personality traits (Big Five Inventory) than was initially used, to check whether earlier findings were caused by the personality measure being too coarse.

Task Difficulty Makes 'No' Response Different From 'Yes' Response in Detection of Fragmented Object Contours.

Perception 2018 Sep 17;47(9):943-965. Epub 2018 Jul 17.

Center for Baby Science, Doshisha University, Japan.

Two-alternative forced choice tasks are often used in object detection, which regards detecting an object as a 'yes' response and detecting no object as a 'no' response. Previous studies have suggested that the processing of yes/no responses arises from identical or similar processing. In this study, we investigated the difference of processing between detecting an object ('yes' response) and not detecting any object ('no' response) by controlling the task difficulty in terms of fragment length and stimulus duration.

Enhancing Motion-In-Depth Perception of Random-Dot Stereograms.

Perception 2018 Jul;47(7):722-734

Optics Department, IMT Atlantique, Brest, France.

Random-dot stereograms have been widely used to explore the neural mechanisms underlying binocular vision. Although they are a powerful tool to stimulate motion-in-depth (MID) perception, published results report some difficulties in the capacity to perceive MID generated by random-dot stereograms. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the performance of MID perception could be improved using an appropriate stimulus design. Read More

Potters Make Shorter Pots Under Conditions of Reduced Sensory Input.

Perception 2018 Aug 9;47(8):860-872. Epub 2018 Jun 9.

University of California Riverside, Riverside, CA, USA.

Although people have made clay pots for millennia, little behavioral research has explored how they do so. We were specifically interested in potters' use of auditory, haptic, and visual feedback. We asked what would happen if one or two of these sources of feedback were removed and potters tried to create pots of a given height, stopping when they thought they had reached that height.

Reasoning About Visibility in Mirrors: A Comparison Between a Human Observer and a Camera.

Perception 2018 Aug 5;47(8):821-832. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Faculty of Development and Society, Sheffield Hallam University, UK.

Human observers make errors when predicting what is visible in a mirror. This is true for perception with real mirrors as well as for reasoning about mirrors shown in diagrams. We created an illustration of a room, a top-down view, with a mirror on a wall and objects (nails) on the opposite wall. Read More

When Is Accreting/Deleting Texture Seen as In Front? Interpretation of Depth From Texture Motion.

Perception 2018 Jul 28;47(7):694-721. Epub 2018 May 28.

Department of Psychology, Center for Cognitive Science, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ, USA.

Standard accounts of accretion/deletion of texture treat it as a definite cue to depth ordering: The accreting/deleting surface is interpreted as being behind the adjoining surface. Froyen, Feldman, and Singh showed that accretion/deletion can also, under certain circumstances, be perceived as a 3D column rotating in front, with the accretion/deletion explained by self-occlusion. These displays differ from traditional accretion/deletion displays in a number of factors, including the presence of figure/ground cues, accretion/deletion on both sides of boundaries, and in the number of distinct regions.

Front-Presented Looming Sound Selectively Alters the Perceived Size of a Visual Looming Object.

Perception 2018 Jul 21;47(7):751-771. Epub 2018 May 21.

Graduate School of Letters, Kyoto University, Japan.

In spite of accumulating evidence for the spatial rule governing cross-modal interaction according to the spatial consistency of stimuli, it is still unclear whether 3D spatial consistency (i.e., front/rear of the body) of stimuli also regulates audiovisual interaction. Read More

Aging and the Visual Perception of Motion Direction: Solving the Aperture Problem.

Perception 2018 Jul 21;47(7):735-750. Epub 2018 May 21.

Department of Psychological Sciences, Ogden College of Science and Engineering, Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, KY, USA.

An experiment required younger and older adults to estimate coherent visual motion direction from multiple motion signals, where each motion signal was locally ambiguous with respect to the true direction of pattern motion. Thus, accurate performance required the successful integration of motion signals across space (i.e. Read More

Distribution of Recognition Times to Fruity Flavor of Gummy Candies in Healthy Adults.

Perception 2018 Aug 17;47(8):851-859. Epub 2018 May 17.

Department of Health and Nutrition, Niigata University of Health and Welfare, Niigata, Japan.

Times for recognition of fruity flavors in six gummy candies were measured using an electromyography-based system in 23 young healthy participants. They were instructed to chew one of the gummy candies at a random order and to press a button as soon as possible when they recognized what flavor was. The measured 181 recognition times showed two distributions, normally ( n = 107) and non-normally ( n = 74). Read More

Receptor Visionaries.

Authors:
Nicholas J Wade

Perception 2018 Aug 17;47(8):833-850. Epub 2018 May 17.

Psychology, University of Dundee, Scotland, UK.

Sensory receptors were described and illustrated after they had been observed with the aid of microscopes. Most descriptions were made in the 19th century after the introduction of achromatic lenses in microscopes. In some senses (like vision), receptors were named according to their morphology whereas in others (like touch), they are known by the names of those who initially described them. Read More
