Gori, Monica Burge, Johannes & Banks, Martin S. (2009). Adapting the figure-ground cue of convexity: Haptic feedback changes the visual perception of depth. Journal of Vision 2009; 9 (8):709.
The authors of this article examine if haptic feedback adapts to the influence of convexity on visual depth perception. To discover if this phenomenon does occur the authors designed an experiment with three phases: a pre-adaptation phase in which the effect of convexity on depth percepts was measured, an adaptation phase in which haptic information about the depth step was provided and a post-adaptation phase in which any change in the effect of convexity on depth perception could be assessed. The authors conclude that haptic feedback does indeed change the visual perception of depth.

This article uses math equations using characteristics of the visual flow while the eye is receiving the information as well as the central nervous system. Using the movement and the deformation the three dimensional objects and what the eye is focusing on will build a characterization of the visual information. Visual motion such as moving head side to side when looking at an object uses the central nervous system as well as the eyes. Focusing on the eyes and the body movements helps understand how the body reacts to different stimuli.
