Two psychophysics experiments are described, pointing out the significant role played by stochastic resonance in recognition of capital stylized noisy letters by the human perceptive apparatus. The first experiment shows that an optimal noise level exists at which the letter is recognized for a minimum threshold contrast. A simple two-parameter model that best fits the experimental data is also discussed. In the second experiment we show that a dramatically increased ability of the visual system in letter recognition occurs in an extremely narrow range of increasing noise. Possible interesting future investigations suggested by these experimental results and based on functional imaging techniques are discussed.
