    George Mather
    School of Psychology, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton BN1 9QH, UK
    Perception 39:1390-5. 2010
    ..A supplementary experiment showed that perceived stature in classical statues also depends on HBR. Michelangelo's David was created with the HBR of a man 165 cm (5 ft 5 in) tall...
  2. pmc Psychophysical properties of two-stroke apparent motion
    George Mather
    Department of Psychology, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK
    J Vis 9:28.1-6. 2009
    ..Results therefore support the conclusion that the ISI in two-stroke apparent motion does contribute a reversed motion signal and constrain theoretical explanations of two-stroke apparent motion...

    George Mather
    Department of Psychology, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton, BN1 9QH, UK
    Trends Cogn Sci 12:481-7. 2008
    ..Recent ideas on the function of adaptation see it as a form of gain control that maximises the efficiency of information transmission at multiple levels of the visual pathway...

    George Mather
    Department of Psychology, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton BN1 9QH, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 275:1645-51. 2008
    ..Judgements are more difficult for balls bouncing near base and service lines than those bouncing near side and centre lines. There is no evidence for significant errors in localization due to image motion...
