The Effects of Drawing Method on the Discriminability of Characters.
DeKay, Michael L.; Freyd, Jennifer J.
Visible Language, v25 n4 p376-414 Fall 1991
Investigates the effect of drawing method on the subsequent discriminability of hand-drawn characters. Finds that members of character pairs drawn using dissimilar stroke directions became more differentiated; subjects were better able to distinguish between members of differentiated character pairs; and subjects were better at distinguishing between members of character pairs which had been drawn using their own drawing rule.
