Size Scaling in Visual Pattern Recognition
Larsen, Axel; Bundesen, Claus
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 4, 1, 1-20, Feb 78
Human visual recognition on the basis of shape but regardless of size was investigated by reaction time methods. Results suggested two processes of size scaling: mental-image transformation and perceptual-scale transformation. Image transformation accounted for matching performance based on visual short-term memory, whereas scale transformation accounted for size invariance in recognition based on comparison against visual representations in long-term memory.
