The suppression model remains unsound: A reply to Deutsch

Chambers, Christopher D., Mattingley, J. B. and Moss, S. A. 2004. The suppression model remains unsound: A reply to Deutsch. Psychonomic Bulletin and Review 11 (4) , pp. 677-680. 10.3758/BF03196619

In the present issue, we critically review the influentialsuppression model of the octave illusion (Chambers, Mattingley, & Moss, 2004). In a rejoinder to our article, Deutsch (2004b) defends the utility of the suppression model. Here, we respond to Deutsch’s arguments, many of which are based on criticisms of our recent experimental report (Chambers, Mattingley, & Moss, 2002). We argue that Deutsch’s criticisms of this previous investigation are unfounded and that her defense of the suppression model fails to account for the most important weaknesses of this theory. We conclude that the suppression model remains inadequate as an explanation of the octave illusion.
