    School of Psychology, University of Southampton, Highfield, Southampton, UK
    J Vis 8:26.1-12. 2008

    Vision Res 47:3096-107. 2007

    Daniel H Baker
    University of Southampton, Highfield, UK

    Stuart A Wallis
    School of Life and Health Sciences, Aston University, Birmingham B4 7ET, UK

    Tim S Meese
    School of Life and Health Sciences, Aston University, Birmingham, UK
    J Vis 9:2.1-15. 2009
