The researchers aren’t yet clear on precisely what degree of similarity in shape and heft objects need to influence a consumer’s perception. “We suspect that it has more to do with specific, salient features of the shapes rather than their overall similarity,” Estes says. “Holding a small ball in your hand might facilitate perception and increase choice of Coca Cola over Pepsi because Coca Cola has the more curved bottle, similar to the ball.

Results Formation of large emboli greater than 1000 m in size occurred in 2 out of 10 cases in the ERIC+BGC group, versus 7, 6 and 5 of 10 experiments with the ERIC+SOFIA, Solitaire+SOFIA, ERIC+SOFIA+BGC groups, respectively. The ERIC+BGC group marginally reduced the number of emboli having a diameter >200 m (p = 0.064), with a total of 5 particles, as compared to the ERIC+Sofia, Solitaire+Sofia, and ERIC+Sofia+BGC groups that produced 20, 17 and 16 fragments >200 m, respectively. On average, in the size range between 100 200 m and 50 100 m, ERIC+Sofia showed a trend to reduce clot fragments as compared with the other 3 treatment strategies; however, these results were not statistically significant (p > 0.05).
