Psychological continuity fields account for visual perception of immediate environments that piece together a background's individual elements to form a panoramic image. This mechanism orients objects within continuous contexts, as when observing a moving vehicle crossing the line of sight.
Other examples of continuity in psychology may include the depth perception required to focus upon projected images, like equipment used while playing sports. Interpreting the exterior environment through panoramic frameworks becomes essential during activities such as operating a car, as a driver must take entire surroundings into account without neglecting specific details. Continuity mechanisms may be involved additionally in facial recognition methods and other means of identifying images viewed in the past.
