Quick Reference

A hypothesis that the perceived size s and the perceived distance d of an object are associated in such a way that their ratio is a constant, so that s/d = k, implying that any misperception of size implies a misperception of distance and vice versa. This relation breaks down in the moon illusion. Compare shape-slant invariance.
