H2: That boys, more often than girls, will identify facsimiles rather than enantiomorphs as representing lamellae.
Projections created by reflecting the facsimile projections in a vertical plane normal to the fronto-parallel plane are called enantiomorphs.
This superiority of boys was not, however, found on the measure involving discrimination between facsimile and enantiomorphic responses; the second hypothesis that boys will, more often than girls, identify facsimiles rather than enantiomorphs as representing the lamellae is therefore not supported by the results.
The subtle same-yet-different aspect of enantiomorphs has been the subject of philosophical argument too.
The enantiomorphs approached 1:1 ratios in random countings of newly open flowers (Table 1).
The difference in the cogency of the two enantiomorphs is related to the orientation of the plane containing the lamellar stimulus with respect to the participant's fronto-parallel plane (Expt 2).
The tendency to confuse enantiomorphs is therefore a function of the relative 'strengths' of the two elements of encodement.
Further, if such a balance between enantiomorphs can indeed be used to encode the orientation of the stimulus then the stimulus's orientation can be encoded on a plane of the enantiomorphs.
