Priming of Pop-Out Does not Affect the Shooting Line Illusion
MetadataShow full item record
We combined a shooting-line illusion with a visual search pop-out task in an effort to determine whether priming of pop-out was due to acceleratcd processing of visual information in the primed dimension. While the priming effect and the line-motion percept were replicated, the visual search task showed no influence on the perceived direction of line motion. These results indicate that the priming effect does not accelerate early visual processing.
