Subjects judged whether two visual patterns had the same shape under conditions in which the patterns could vary orthogonally in size and orientation. Analyses of reaction times and errors indicated that, before judging the correspondence between shapes, subjects normalized orientational variation by means of a continuous mental rotation. However, an analogous normalization for variation in size was not detected, and thus no evidence for an internal operation of size scaling was obtained in this experiment. The latter result is at variance with previous findings, and we discuss two possible explanations for this lack of effect.
