In the present task embedding is achieved, in spite of the clear delineation of the figure, by means of the fact that the figure together with its enantiomorph forms a symmetrical pattern.
It incorporates an assumption that the confusability of enantiomorphs indicates that enantiomorphs are used to encode the orientation of planes of stimuli with respect to the fronto-parallel plane.
Two arrangements of the enantiomorphs which are referred to as 'bd' and 'db' and which differed in positioning of the axis of symmetry were used for construction of the response stimuli (see Fig.
The results clearly show that orientation of the stimulus affects the relative strength of the encoded enantiomorphs.
Thus, it was put forward that a lamella of shape 'b' is encoded by two enantiomorphs, 'b' and 'd', which are arranged in either 'bd' or 'db' manner depending on whether the 'belly' of the lamella or its 'stem' is closer to the viewer.
That participants will perceive the facsimile of a stimulus lamella as more similar to the lamella than they would the enantiomorph of this facsimile.
That the discrepancy between the perceived similarity of the facsimile and its enantiomorph will vary with the orientations of the lamella with respect to the fronto-parallel plane.
