Human observers achieve a surprising precision in many visual judgements, such as estimating relative position, colinearity and the regularity of shape. We measured the sensitivity in detecting shape deformations by presenting a square simultaneously with a rectangle of variable aspect ratio, or a circle with an ellipsoid. Weber fractions approach 3-5% and improve to approximately 1% when subjects are asked to tell which of the two objects was 'oriented more vertically', instead of identifying...[Show more]
