With strict fixation, the eye quickly adapts to moving periodic stimuli presented to the peripheral retina. A slowly spinning sector disk, 7 degrees in diameter, will rapidly appear to slow down and come to a standstill (within 5-25 sec). The time required for this full motion adaptation decreases with (a) increasing retinal eccentricity (30-70 degrees); (b) increasing number of sectors (16-60); and (c) decreasing speed of rotation (0.3-0.5 rev/sec). After the standstill, the disk fades from… CONTINUE READING
