Stopping the motion and sleuthing the flash-lag effect: spatial uncertainty is the key to perceptual mislocalization

A moving object is perceived to lie beyond a static object presented at the same time at the same retinal location (flash-lag effect or FLE). Some studies report that if the moving stimulus stops moving (flash-terminated condition or FTC) the instant the flash occurs, a FLE does not occur. Other studies, using different stimuli, report that the FLE does, in… (More)
