The scintillating grid illusion refers to an illusory perception of black spots on the geometries at the intersections of gray grids on a black background. In this study, we examined how the shape of geometries modulated the strength of the illusion. The results indicate that not the categorical difference of the shape, but the orientation difference between the grids and the geometries determines the strength of the illusion. We discussed about the contribution of orientation processing to scintillating grid illusion.
