[visionlist] Highly cited publications on vision in which authors were also subjects?

I believe that both Fergus Campbell and I developed quite a reputation for 
asking authors of drafts of psychophysical papers about the subjective 
experience of being an experimental subject. We both always felt that the 
design of experiments should take into account what it was like to be a 
subject and it was always desirable for authors to be among the subjects. 
You will find that all the most cited psychophysical papers of both 
Campbell and myself rely heavily (if not exclusively) on reports of 
observations made by their authors.
