This paper follows from studies by Joung, van der Zwan and Latimer (2000) in which symmetrical dot patterns with one axis of symmetry were used to produce tilt aftereffects (TAEs). The present paper investigates TAE functions produced by symmetrical dot patterns with multiple axes of symmetry. In Experiments 1 and 2, TAE functions produced by dot patterns with two axes of symmetry were compared with TAE functions produced by line stimuli arranged in the same orientation and location as the axes of symmetry in the dot patterns. Similar functions were found. In Experiments 3 and 4, functions produced by dot patterns with four axes of symmetry were compared with functions produced by line stimuli arranged in the same orientation and location as the four axes of symmetry. Again, similar functions were found. These experiments demonstrate that line stimuli and dot stimuli produce similar TAE functions. The implications of these results are discussed.
