We document the performance of 26 human observers practicing a motion discrimination task in foveal vision. Two blocks of 1960 apparent motion stimuli each were presented in succession. Stimuli in the two blocks were tailored to activate either the ON-pathway (ON-stimulus) or the OFF-pathway (OFF-stimulus). Initial performance of about half of the subjects was rather weak but improved with practice. Initial performance of the other subjects remained unaffected for the first block. Once… CONTINUE READING
