Keeping track of the distance from home by leaky integration along veering paths


When humans use vision to gauge the travel distance of an extended forward movement, they often underestimate the movement’s extent. This underestimation can be explained by leaky path integration, an integration of the movement to obtain distance. Distance underestimation occurs because this integration is imperfect and contains a leak that increases with… (More)
