    Transfer of the median plane slant aftereffect was assessed across changes in the type of depth information for the slant of the display. In addition, the effectiveness of monocularpictorial and binocular information in inducing the aftereffect was measured. Binocular information produced a larger aftereffect than did monocular-pictorial information, and adaptation created with one type of depth information induced an aftereffect assessed with presentation of the other type of depth information. The results suggest that the slant aftereffect is not entirely specific to type of depth information presented. The induction of the aftereffect involves a process more general than the sensory mechanisms responsible for adaptation to twodimensional tilt or adaptation to a texture gradient.
