Some psychophysical determinants of discrete Moiré patterns

In a series of experiments we have investigated the perception of Moiré patterns as a function of spatial density, rotation and temporal display parameters. Results indicate that the local correlation extraction process involved in the perception of these patterns is not feature specific, yet is driven by excitatory (correlated) and inhibitory (uncorrelated) information under a form of spatial summation. These results are comparable with recent results on texture discrimination where texture interpoint distance distributions (dipole statistics) have also been discovered to have excitatory and inhibitory components.
