The Neural Control of Vision
O. Illusions

This theory is wrong for the following reasons:

  1. The effect is not size dependent

  2. The effect can be obtained with contrast reversal

  3. The effect can be negated without affecting the assumed relationship between the stimulus and the receptive fields

  4. The discharge and distribution of retinal ganglion cells is not what is assumed by the theory

  5. The spatial arrangement of receptive fields is not what is assumed by the theory.
