Corballis and Beale's (1976) notion implies that discrimination between any two stimuli which project enantiomorphic images onto the eye should be equally difficult.
The first experiment is intended to provide preliminary data for exploring the above simple model of enantiomorphic confusions.
Two pairs of enantiomorphic lamellae in the form of random hexagons served as the main experimental stimuli.
Further, the difference in ease of learning to discriminate between enantiomorphic stimuli suggests that the facsimile encodements of the lamellae set at an angle to the fronto-parallel plane are relatively 'weaker' than those of the lamellae in the fronto-parallel plane.
Scores obtained with facsimile response stimuli should be higher than those obtained with enantiomorphic response stimuli.
Analysis of variance yielded a highly significant difference between responses evoked by facsimile response stimuli and the enantiomorphic stimuli (F(1,23) = 17.
It is announced in the Enantiomorphic Chambers, those matched mirror constructions, and developed in his non-sites, which stage dialectical relationships to actual sites.
The Enantiomorphic Chambers are uncannily alike and sharply opposed.
