What an Image Depicts Depends on What an Image Means.
Chambers, Deborah; Reisberg, Daniel
Cognitive Psychology, v24 n2 p145-74 Apr 1992
Seven experiments with a total of 480 subjects indicated that subjects visually imaging classical ambiguous figures have difficulty reconstructing the images, and that their construal of the image strongly influences what is depicted within the image. Image content, rather than image inspection, appears to be selective. (SLD)
