Re: direct/indirect perception

Dear Julien,

a good reference for the direct/indirect perception issue is:

Michaels, c. F. & Carello, C. (1981). Direct Perception. Englewood Cliffs,
NJ:Prentice-Hall, Inc.

Also, a paper which might be interesting to you is this one:

Epstein, W. (1982). Percept–percept couplings. Perception, 11, 75–83.
