Abstract:

The purpose of this experiment was to determine how accurately observers could recognize tridimensional visual stimuli. Each stimulus varied in three dimensions form, color, and crosshatching. There were in all 10 different forms, 10 different colors, and 4 different crosshatchings. A tri-dimensional stimulus was therefore a colored, crosshatched form. For each list a critical stimulus was presented for inspection and study, then followed by 80 test stimuli. For each of the 80 test stimuli Ss had to judge whether its form, color, and crosshatching was or was not the same as the form, color, and crosshatching of the critical stimulus. There were 2 lists on each of 4 days. While the recognition of color was considerably poorer than form or crosshatching, overall the recognition accuracy was high the average error rate was only 3.4.
