Peripheral Vision (12-17-19)

Kirsch, Pfister, and Kunde studied peripheral vision.  They share that “An object appears smaller in the periphery than in the center of the visual field. In two experiments. . . .[the] outcome suggests that objects appear smaller in the visual periphery not only because of the structural properties of the visual system but also because of a lack of spatial attention.”
