Abstract

With applications increasingly using 3D displays, it is important to examine how humans perceive objects located within this medium. The current study examined memory accuracy for the location of a briefly presented visual object when presented using a 3D projector. We observed distortions of depth perception in visual space (i.e., the remembered location of a visual object tended to be underestimated). In addition, we found that this underestimation was not affected by the depth of a fixation point. These results suggest that memorized locations of visual objects tend to be biased toward the observer. We further discuss implications for these findings.
