To address this issue, one must determine the relationships between geometrical features of visual space, distance, direction, angle, and size.
Consistent evidence indicates that visual angle is a determinant of perceived exocentric distance.
Previous evidence suggests that exocentric distance and direction are hierarchically processed, with distance preceding direction.
The present study investigated the relationship between the perceptual processing of egocentric direction and exocentric direction using a task that independently provides both perceptual variables in a single judgment.
The results indicated that egocentric directions were systematically overestimated, and this was not caused by eit...
