Comparative literature provides conflicting findings whether animals experience amodal completion. Five experiments were conducted to verify if baboons perceive partly occluded objects as complete. The first three experiments used a go/no-go procedure and a video monitor for stimulus presentation. These experiments failed to reveal amodal completion, suggesting that the stimuli were processed as 2-D images rather than 3-D objects. In contrast, completion was demonstrated in a fourth experiment with cardboard stimuli in a two-alternative forced-choice (2AFC) discrimination task presented in a Wisconsin General Test Apparatus. Although in experiment 5 the same 2AFC procedure was used as in experiment 4, completion was absent when the stimuli were shown with a computer graphic system. The results suggest that baboons share with humans the ability for amodal completion, but also underline some procedural factors that might affect the elicitation of this capacity.
