The human visual system has a wide visual field and this spatial extension is vitally important for perceiving patterns. If the visual field is restricted to a certain limited area, the ability of pattern perception seriously deteriorates. It was suggested that with a restricted visual field the way of pattern perception becomes similar to that of tactile. This suggestion was based on the phenomenon called 'recall patterns make to perceive', which occurred in restricted visual and tactile observations. The present report confirms the phenomenon and shows the similarity by measuring the percentage of correct observation of stimuli and the reaction time for recognition of stimuli with these two observation modes.
