To elucidate perceptual filling-in mechanisms in peripheral vision, we investigated dependency of filling-in occurrence on spatio-temporal frequency of dynamic textures surrounding the filling-in target. We first measured spatial frequency sensitivity of the filling-in target in static texture. Then, the time to filling-in, when dynamic textures which have variously limited spatio-temporal frequency are surrounding the filling-in target, were measured. According to the hypothesis of filling-in process which has already proposed by the authors, the tendency of inducing filling-in, i.e., the attenuation factor of perceptual power for filling-in target in dynamic textures, is estimated as a function of spatio-temporal frequency. It was suggested that surrounding texture with stronger perception promotes filling-in more intensively.
