How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Most data analyses rely on models. To complement statistical models, psychologists have developed cognitive models, which translate observed variables into psychologically interesting constructs. Response time models, in particular, assume that response time and accuracy are the observed expression of latent variables including 1) ease of processin...
Article
One of the fundamental challenges of visual cognition is how our visual systems combine information about an object's features with its spatial location. A recent phenomenon related to object-location binding, the "spatial congruency bias," revealed that two objects are more likely to be perceived as having the same identity or features if they app...
Article
Despite frequent eye movements that rapidly shift the locations of objects on our retinas, our visual system creates a stable perception of the world. To do this, it must convert eye-centered (retinotopic) input to world-centered (spatiotopic) percepts. Moreover, for successful behavior we must also incorporate information about object features/ide...

Despite frequent eye movements that rapidly shift the locations of objects on our retinas, our visual system creates a stable perception of the world. To do this, it must convert eye-centered (retinotopic) input to world-centered (spatiotopic) percepts. Intuitively, the most stable way for objects to be incorporated into these percepts is for their...
Article
When we look at an object, we assign it a place in our spatial surroundings. Simultaneously, we process details of the object such as color, shape, curves, and edges. However, what if the object moves from one place to another? Do we have to re-bind all of these features to the object, or are we able to keep the traits intact? Recent research has s...
Article
Objects can be characterized by a number of properties (e.g., shape, color, size, and location). How do our visual systems combine this information, and what allows us to recognize when 2 objects are the same? Previous work has pointed to a special role for location in the binding process, suggesting that location may be automatically encoded even...
Article
In our everyday lives, we must coherently bind the features and identities of objects with their spatial locations. We previously showed that location information biases object identity judgments: when two objects share the same location, subjects are more likely to judge them as the same shape (Golomb & Kupitz, VSS 2013). This spatial "congruency...
Article
To function properly in the world, we need to bind the features and identities of objects with their spatial locations. How automatic is this process, and what is the nature of this location information? Subjects saw two sequentially presented novel "objects" (each presented for 500ms and masked, separated by approximately 1sec memory delay), and w...

Our perception of an object's size arises from the integration of multiple sources of visual information including retinal size, perceived distance and its size relative to other objects in the visual field. This constructive process is revealed through a number of classic size illusions such as the Delboeuf Illusion, the Ebbinghaus Illusion and ot...
