Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Geometrical optical illusions are believed to give important clues to elucidate information processing mechanism of vision. Attention is paid to an illusion figure in which the same figure is attached to both sides of a line segment. When the size of the attached figure is decreased, the length of the line segment appeares longer. If, however, the size becomes smaller beyond some extent, it shows a singularity that the length appears to become shorter. By the use of this phenomenon, size perception mechanism has been deduced whether it depends on relative size jugdement or on depth information induced by nearby figure.
