In many visual displays such as virtual environments, human tasks involve objects superimposed on both complex and moving backgrounds. However, most studies investigated the influence of background complexity or background motion in isolation. Two experiments were designed to investigate the joint influences of background complexity and lateral motion on a simple shooting task typical of video games. Participants had to perform the task on the moving and static versions of backgrounds of three… Expand
How visual background motion and task difficulty modulate players' performance in a shooting task
Design recommendations based on manipulations of the background characteristics are proposed to establish the level of difficulty in simple video games that use lateral background motion. Expand
Low-level visual features of video game interfaces and player expertise
Results showed that players' performance was impaired by task difficulty and that this impairment was attenuated for expert players, because of their enhanced attentional skills, and design recommendations based on manipulations of the interfaces' visual features are proposed to establish the level of challenge in action video games.

Now You See It, Now You Don't: A Change Blindness Assessment of Flight Display Complexity and Pilot Performance
Results indicated that change detection was impaired with the SVS display across the pilot ranks, supporting other research that suggests that the background complexity of SVS hampers the speed and accuracy of identifying visual cues. Expand

Impact of the motion and visual complexity of the background on players' performance in video game-like displays
Variations in the low-level features of visual backgrounds may be used to control challenge in video games if background complexity is low and performance on both tasks was impaired when the complexity of the background increased. Expand
Multisensory Integration With a Head-Mounted Display: Background Visual Motion and Sound Motion
Assessment of how background visual motion and the relative movement of sound affect a head-mounted display (HMD) wearer’s performance at a task requiring integration of auditory and visual information concluded that Multisensory integration performance is least effective when HMD users experience a combination of background visualmotion and relative move of sound.

Segmentation of objects from backgrounds in visual search tasks
In six experiments, the ability of the visual system to separate search items from a background is examined and the results support a view in which objects are separated from backgrounds in a single, preattentive step. Expand
Background, an important factor in visual search
The ability to detect an object depends on the contrast between the object and its background. Despite this, many models of visual search rely solely on the properties of target and distractors, andExpand
Cognitive factors can influence self-motion perception (vection) in virtual reality
It is demonstrated that cognitive mechanisms like ecological relevance and presence evoked by a virtual environment can also enhance visually induced self-motion illusions (vection) and might help to improve the effectiveness and believability of virtual reality applications. Expand
Measuring search efficiency in complex visual search tasks: global and local clutter.
Three experiments use a quantitative measure of the amount and variability of visual information in highly complex stimuli in digital aeronautical charts to examine limits of attention in visual search and suggest design techniques that could improve pilots' search performance in aer onautical charts.

Slow eye movements induced by apparent target motion in monkey
Slow eye movements were observed while the monkey fixated on a subject-stationary, small target light in front of a moving optokinetic drum in an attempt to suppressoptokinetic nystagmus (OKN), and it is assumed that these slow eye movements are induced by a perceived target motion. Expand
Visual Mislocalisation Induced by Translational and Radial Background Motion
The mislocalisation is a visual illusion induced by a transient background motion toward the central fixation point that occurs when a spot was flashed before contracting motion of the background. Expand
The effect of optokinetic nystagmus on the perceived position of briefly flashed targets
The results suggest that OKN cause perceptual mis localizations similar to those of smooth pursuit and saccades, but there are some differences in the nature of the mislocalizations, pointing to different perceptual mechanisms associated with the different types of eye movements. Expand
Eccentric gaze dynamics enhance vection in depth.
It is concluded that enhancements of vection strength over time were temporally contingent upon the changing character of OFR while viewing these displays. Expand
