Tilt aftereffects were generated by bilaterally symmetrical dot patterns. Both expansion and contraction effects, similar in size and magnitude to effects usually reported with luminance contours, were observed after adaptation to symmetrical patterns tilted 15 deg or 75 deg respectively from a vertically oriented test. Large effects were found when both adapting and test stimuli were symmetrical patterns while smaller effects were found when the adapting stimulus was symmetrical and test stimulus was a grating. A third experiment, which manipulated the number of dots near the axis line, confirmed the above findings; expansion and contraction effects were observed again. The results of these experiments suggest that the neural mechanism underlying the perception of luminance contours may be linked to the mechanism for the detection of symmetry.
