The average shape displayed 57 dots, this being every 4th dot from the full inventory of dots in the boundary. The full inventory of boundary dots for a shape that matches this average is shown in panel A. At B the method for choosing the display set is illustrated. To select this set for a given subject, a random dot was chosen as the starting point, here indicated by an arrow. Then, counting clockwise, every Nth dot was marked for inclusion in the set of dots to be displayed (every fourth dot for this example). The full complement of dots that would be shown, i.e., the display set, is provided in panel C.
