CONGRUENT RETINAL POINTS, CORRIDOR ILLUSION

a demonstration of size constancy wherein two exact beings or items seem to be extremely varied in length and girth. Whenever the beings or items are put in an image of a passageway, the item or being furthest away looks bigger than the item or being closest to the viewer. This is due to depth cues and how they impact anticipations regarding authentic size.

CONGRUENT RETINAL POINTS, CORRIDOR ILLUSION: "Corridor illusions are seen quite often in optical illusion pictures."
