How does transparency of overlapping objects affect object recognition? Two studies are presented that compares recognition of overlapping transparent objects to recognition of overlapping, non-transparent objects. The first study gauges the minimum time a picture of two overlapping objects must be presented in order to identify both objects correctly. The second study looks for differences in gaze patterns while inspecting the same kind of pictures presented for unlimited time. Recognition of objects rich in detail helpful for identifying the objects are compared to recognition of objects with many fewer identity-relevant details. Results have implications about how objects in a scene are segregated when relative depth is or is not apparent.
