The success of Körte's law in explaining the visual case suggests that there is a parallel law in audition, with melodic motion taking the place of spatial motion. 7 This law would state that if you want to maintain the sense of melodic motion as the frequency separation between high and low tones increases, you must slow the sequence down. As with visual apparent motion it is as if the psychological mechanism responsible for the integration of auditory sequences could not keep up with rapid changes.

This change was seen as motion only if the shape was seen as representing the outline of a ''figure" both before and after the disappearance. If the observer was induced to see it as "ground" (the shape of an empty space between forms) < previous page page_23 If you like this book, buy it! next page > < previous page page_24 next page > Page 24 before it disappeared, and as "figure" (the shape of an actual figure) when it reappeared, the displacement was not seen as motion but as an appearance from nowhere of the figure.

It also provides information about occlusion (which spaces between fragments were created by the fact that the mask occluded our view of the underneath shape). These spaces should be ignored and treated as missing evidence, not as actual spaces. The continuity among the contours of the fragments of a particular B undoubtedly contributes to their grouping, but this continuity becomes effective only in the presence of occlusion information. < previous page page_26 If you like this book, buy it! ) The conclusion to be reached is this: the closure mechanism is really a way of dealing with missing evidence.
