Abstract:

Sixteen observers adjusted the position of white or colored rod until it seemed to be alongside a reference white or colored rod. The colors used were blue and red of matched luminances. Observers tended to see the red rods as nearer and the blue rods as further away. It was concluded that red and blue are used as cues for depth perception.
