Takano, Y. & Kimura, E.
Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics      Oct 2019   [Refereed]
Spatial averaging of luminances over a variegated region has been assumed in visual processes such as light adaptation, texture segmentation, and lightness scaling. Despite the importance of these processes, how mean brightness can be computed rem...

The present study investigated how color information was summarized in multicolor mosaics. The mosaics were composed of small elements of 17 colors that roughly belonged to a single color category. We manipulated the degree of color variation arou...

It has been shown that when two arrays of Arabic numerals were briefly presented,
observers could accurately indicate which array contained the larger number of a
target numeral. This study investigated whether this rapid proportion comparison
can...

© 2014 Kimura and Kuroki. In the watercolor configuration composed of wavy double contours, both assimilative and non-assimilative color spreading have been demonstrated depending on the luminance conditions of the inner and outer contours (IC and...

© 2014 The Authors. When distinguishing illumination from reflectance edges, both edge blurriness and textural continuity across an edge are generally used as cues to promote the illumination-edge interpretation. However, when these cues were comb...

Project Year: 2007 - 2009    Investigator(s): Eiji KIMURA
Using interocular suppression phenomena such as binocular rivalry, this study investigated visual mechanisms underlying binocular integration and correlations between perceptual changes and pupillary responses. In the pupillometric experiments, we...

Project Year: 2005 - 2006    Investigator(s): Eiji KIMURA
The purpose of this study was to investigate binocular interaction using the pupillary response as an objective probe. The present study also conducted additional psychophysical investigations to elucidate visual mechanisms underlying binocular in...
Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology: Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C))
Project Year: 2002 - 2003    Investigator(s): Eiji KIMURA
This research project investigated chromatic processing contributing to spatial organization. Spatial organization refers to the visual function which groups visually similar elements together and segregates the group of elements from its surround...

Project Year: 1999 - 2001    Investigator(s): Eiji KIMURA
To establish the pupillometry as a noninvasive and objective probe for visual processing in humans, the present study investigated the visual mechanism mediating the pupillary response evoked by chromatic changes. The present findings can be summa...
