Stimuli used in an fMRI study on the representation of depth-cues in the visual system. These stimuli were created by Hassan Akhavein.

Objects were defined by isolated depth-cues (shading, texture and structure from motion)


Examples of Objects Defined by shading and Textures

Shaded Body
Texture Body
Shaded Face
Texture Face
Shaded Fruit

Examples of control stimuli

Control Stimuli that preserve the mean depth of the object,

generated from depth-map of the object using steerable
