Differences in the magnitude of the Delboeuf Illusion and Usnadze Effect during adulthood

, : Differences in the magnitude of the Delboeuf Illusion and Usnadze Effect during adulthood. Journal of Gerontology 34(2): 229-233

The Delboeuf illusion (type I) and Usnadze Effect (type II) were used to investigate changes in perceptual processes in 72 female subjects, aged 20-79 yr. Unlike other studies, small figures (less than were presented for brief exposure periods under fixation conditions. The magnitude of the Delboeuf illusion increased in old age. The magnitude of the Usnadze Effect showed no change.

Apparent sizes of circles in the Delboeuf figure were measured by magnitude estimation without modulus. The purpose was to investigate the Delboeuf illusion and the effect of judgment order on perceived size. Contrary to the conventional Delboeuf...

In the Delboeuf illusion, a circle judged initially has a weaker effect of size induction than a circle judged subsequently (the judgment-order effect). This effect has been attributed to differential allocation of visual attention (Hamada et al,...

In experiment 1 participants were...
