    The Perception of the Visual World is described by the author as "a book about how we see-" also as "primarily a book about objects." A still more pointed characterization is given in the first sentence of the preface: "The principal subject of this book is the visual perception of space." To distinguish a "visual world" of surfaces and edges from. In addition to the misperceived size of people, balls appear to roll up troughs when they should roll down. Ames was one of the first to discover the amount of power experience has on perception. 2. Description. Upon viewing people or objects within an Ames room, there is a loss of normal perspective.

    As part of the NSF funded "Project LITE: Light Inquiry Through Experiments", we have been developing inexpensive experiments and demonstrations that can be done at home. One of these is a miniature version of the classic "Ames Room". The life size version was originally developed by Adelbert Ames, Jr. and can be seen in many science museums. "It seems to us that at least one compelling conclusion emerges from the survey we have just completed: the size-distance relationship expressed in the several formulations of the invariance hypothesis should not be assigned a unique or primary status in explanations of space perception." Alternative formulations and methodological issues are examined. From Psyc Abstracts BG91E.

The Ames distorted room illusion, in which the perceived sizes of objects placed within the room differ from their objective sizes, has been used to support arguments for indirect perception. A study is reported in which Emmert's law of the apparent size of after-images was examined in relation to the Ames room's illusory alteration of apparent.

He is most widely remembered today as the inventor of the Ames Demonstrations in Perception, the most famous of which consists of a distorted room in which people seem to shrink as they walk from one corner to.

Ames, Adelbert, Jr. () was a visual physiologist who studied optics and perception. He identified a retinal-image dysfunction. He also created more than 24 visual illusions known as “the Ames demonstrations in perceptions.” Ames developed a series of laboratory illusions designed to.

Adelbert Ames Jr. (Aug – July 3, ) was an American scientist who made contributions to physics, physiology, ophthalmology, psychology, and pioneered the study of physiological optics at Dartmouth College, serving as a research professor, then as director of research at the Dartmouth Eye conducted important research into aspects of binocular vision.
