We investigate the ability of humans to perceive changes in the appearance of images of surface texture caused by the variation of their higher order statistics. We incrementally randomize their phase spectra while holding their first and second orde...

Change in appearance of textures with randomisation of Fourier phase (2009)
Journal Article
Emrith, K., Green, P. R., & Chantler, M. J. (2009). Change in appearance of textures with randomisation of Fourier phase. Perception, 38, 64

It is known that humans can discriminate visual textures on the basis of differences in statistics higher than the second order. However, these results have been obtained using artificial textures made up of geometric elements, and the effects of man...
