The Effect of Viewing Necker Time

The Effect Of The Length Of Viewing Time On Necker Cube Reversals

Previous research has shown that the length of viewing time has influenced the Necker cube reversals. The following experiment was performed in order to test whether reversals occurr as a result of the length of viewing of time. A within participant design was used, on 36, undergraduate students.
The results showed the effect of the length of viewing time had no increase upon the reversals. Further test could involve both increasing viewing time and the intervals to 30 seconds to observe whether reversals increase over time.
The effect of the length of the viewing time of the Necker cube, relates to the Psychological study of Perception. Perception is a cognitive process which results in the attainment of knowledge.  The acquisition of this knowledge derives from the extraction of information from our visual experiences, of objects and events that are processed from environment. Perception is not uniquely defined to visual experiences.  As information that is processed within our visual perception stems from light, that is either reflected or discharged by objects. The information that we see at the back of the eyes is 2d. This is sent to the visual brain neural connections that formulate assumptions of conscious perception which then produce a 3d image of the world.
Evidence has been provided to state that visual experience is not a true depiction of reality. As adaptations to visual perception, are dependent upon the conditions. Therefore mis conception within physical reality can lead to perceptive illusions. The Necker cube is an example of a figurative illusion.

The Necker cube is a 2d lined drawing of a transparent cube, which has 12 edges. The Necker cube is described as an ambiguous figure. An individual observing the cube will initially see one orientation of the cube. However when a 3d interpretation of the Necker cube is made, the image reverses in depth and...
