Studies have shown that spatial aftereffects increase with eccentricity. Here, we demonstrate that the shape-frequency and shape-amplitude aftereffects, which describe the perceived shifts in the shape of a sinusoidal-shaped contour following adaptation to a slightly different sinusoidal-shaped contour, also increase with eccentricity. Why does this happen? We first demonstrate that the perceptual shift increases with eccentricity for stimuli of fixed sizes. These shifts are not attenuated by...[Show more]
