Abstract

Because the discriminability of spatial intervals may give a pointer to possible underlying detection mechanisms for hyperacuity, a careful measurement was undertaken of how this function behaves with the width of the spatial intervals in the 6- to 12-min-of-arc range. Data on two subjects failed to produce convincing evidence for significant segmentation in the line-separation discrimination curve.
