(a) Unique transparency that follows Metelli's (1974) formula, in which gray bars are seen transparent and perceived as if they were located in front of the horizontal black occluder. Since the apparent depth order is unique, this type is called unique transparency. (b) The figure invalid for transparency. (c) Bistable transparency, in which the vertical grating can be seen either in front of or behind the occluder. Arrows indicate contrast polarity ("lighter than").
