Abstract

Vittorio Benussi was the first researcher to demonstrate that, in perception, space and time

the length of temporal intervals influence the judgement on spatial distances. Although several years passed, the link between space and time has no yet definitely clarified. The aim conditions in which tau effect appears with visual stimuli. Our results confirmed the influence of the duration of temporal intervals on the perceived length of spatial distances. An interaction between space and time with both the position of the Standard Stimulus and the direction of stimuli presentation adds further meaning to Benussi results.
