In classic demonstrations of apparent motion, observers typically report seeing motion along the shortest possible path between 2 sequentially presented objects. However, when realistic photographs of a human body are sequentially presented at slow temporal rates, observers report paths of apparent motion that are consistent with the movement limitations of the human body even when those paths are not the shortest possible. The current set of experiments examined those aspects of the human form… CONTINUE READING
