Details

This book of proceedings collects papers referring to three key events celebrated at the University of Trieste on 27th and 28th November, 2014:1) the sixtieth anniversary of the Kanizsa triangle; 2) the twenty-second Kanizsa Lecture; 3) the Trieste Symposium on Perception and Cognition, TSPC2014. The volume opens with the English translation of Kanizsa’s report included in the proceedings of the tenth meeting of Italian psychologists in Chianciano Terme (10-14 October 1954), which features the first published version of the illusory triangle that would have become an icon of vision science. As a second contribution, the volume includes the speaker notes of the twenty-second Kanizsa Lecture, held by the 2014 invited speaker Barbara Gillam, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, on Thursday 27 November. The notes drive the reader through the lecture and provide a rich set of demonstrations on how perceptual grouping affects different levels of vision: from low (e.g., disparity coding) to mid level (e.g., subjective contour formation). The third part of the volume collects talks and posters presented at TSPC2014, organized by the Psychology Unit of the Department of Life Sciences, University of Trieste. The symposium included two oral sessions (on 27th and 28th November) and a poster session (November 28th).

    The aim of the study was to investigate the dynamics of metacognitive monitoring during learning category structures defined by logical rules of different levels of complexity: conjunctive, conjunctive-disjunctive or complex rule. Feelingof- warmth judgments were used repeatedly during learning to assess participants' subjective feelings about how close they are to the acquisition of the appropriate rule. After each judgment, participants were asked to describe logical rules underlying category structures. As expected, the results showed that feeling-of-warmth judgments generally follow classification accuracy through the course of learning. Rule description accuracy shows a similar pattern and is also congruent with classification accuracy through the course of learning. Contrary to expectations, there were no differences between different levels of category structure complexity on any of the tested measures.

    The paper discusses the Heterogeneity Hypothesis about concepts (Machery, 2009) and the empirical support on which it is based. Two experiments are presented which investigate one of the main predictions of the theory, i.e., the fact that people should be willing to accept apparently contradictory sentences about the same entity.

    According to a technique widely used in art schools, everyone can make more realistic drawings by copying upside-down originals. We tested if this is true by asking 40 artistically untrained participants to copy either upright or upside-down drawings of a face or a car. Our results indicate that participants were faster when copying the car in comparison to the face, but not when copying upside-down in comparison to upright images. In addition, they were more accurate in capturing the global proportions of the image in comparison to the local proportions of its parts. However, neither the face nor the car were copied more accurately when presented upside-down. Overall, we observed no significant difference in accuracy between the upright and upside-down conditions, with most measures showing a pattern consistent with greater accuracy in the upright orientation especially for the face. These results provide no evidence that copying upside-down images promotes greater resemblance to the original stimulus image. Implications for the cognitive psychology of drawing and for the pedagogy of the visual arts are discussed

    Many health online resources addressed to the general public lack usability and their content is frequently difficult to understand. This case study evaluates the usability and the effectiveness of information presentation of the “Alcol e Salute” website, using two methods: heuristic evaluation and user testing. The results of the usability testing analysis revealed several key weaknesses with respect both to navigation and information display. These results will be used to revise the website accordingly.
