Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to apply the adjacency principle to the perception of relative depth from size cues. In agreement with the adjacency principle, it was found that the size cue between adjacent objects was more effective than the size cue between displaced objects in determining the perceived relative depth position of objects. An additional, although minor, factor concerned with task-set was tentatively identified as contributing to the perception of depth from size cues. Author
