On the Helmholtz principle, mentioned earlier, perceptual illusions are due to disparities in the very cues that normally produce accurate information. The Müller-Lyer illusion is a particularly good example of the Helmholtz principle. The very features that are integral to the Müller-Lyer shape, namely the shaft and fins, and the overall size of the configuration, give contradictory cues to size and length.

That was not the case. The virtual elimination of the illusion in both modalities occurred only with explicit instructions to use body-centered cues for reference. The fact that the virtual elimination of the illusion in both modalities occurred only with explicit instructions to use body-centered cues for reference raises questions about the heuristics that people use spontaneously to remember spatial information from touch and movement, and what conditions elicit or prevent spatial coding. This question is considered in the next section.
