IT IS KNOWN THAT THE PERCEIVED DURATION OF VISUAL STIMULI IS STRONGLY INFLUENCED BY SPEED: faster moving stimuli appear to last longer. To test whether this is a general property of sensory systems we asked participants to reproduce the duration of visual and tactile gratings, and visuo-tactile gratings moving at a variable speed (3.5-15 cm/s) for three different durations (400, 600, and 800 ms). For both modalities, the apparent duration of the stimulus increased strongly with stimulus speed… CONTINUE READING
