Visual Figure-ground Perception

Cues affecting figure-grouping perception:
Convexity, Symmetry, Small Area, Enclosure

The cues we used in our current experiment include: Convexity, Width (Area).

The stimulus looks like this:

The participants select whether they think the black or the white part is the figure.
