a photograph, we'll see distorted lines when they aren't distorted ?

  It doesn't sound very scientific to me. Since when
are there "underlying mechanisms" for curve and
corner perception? Depth perception, to render 3-D
vision, depends on the play of light. I don't see any
need to make up new mechanisms to explain that
phenomenon.

  The links are broken on that page. The scientist
seems to be legitimate, but seems to specialize
in "is-it-a-vase-or-is-it-a-face" research. At least
my taxes are not funding this one. :)
