Abstract

Two new aftereffects are described in which the comparison of successively presented textures can be affected by prior exposure (adaptation) to biased sequences. A dynamic aftereffect of texture density can be produced using changes in non-Fourier texture density (using balanced-dot textures). An analogous dynamic aftereffect is demonstrated for texture contrast. These two effects are dissociated experimentally by the near absence of cross-adaptation. Evidence is also presented that the density effect is not one of texture motion (e.g. expansion/contraction of texture).
