Stimuli Sets

The Validated Circular Shape Space (VCS Space)

We created the first perceptually uniform “Shape Wheel” in which prototypical shapes were morphed to generate a circular space of 360 stimuli. On this circular space, shapes located closer together in angular distance were validated to be more subjectively similar compared to shapes located further away, a property that is true anywhere on this space.

All stimuli materials and a wiki is available on the Open Science Framework:
