We examined how stream/bounce event perception is affected by motion correspondence based on the surface features of moving objects passing behind an occlusion. In the stream/bounce display two identical objects moving across each other in a two-dimensional display can be perceived as either streaming through or bouncing off each other at coincidence. Here, surface features such as colour (Experiments 1 and 2) or luminance (Experiment 3) were switched between the two objects at coincidence. The…

Visual Mislocalization of Moving Objects in an Audiovisual Event
Findings indicate a new example of crossmodal mislocalization, which can be obtained without temporal offsets between audiovisual stimuli, which is specific to a more complex stimulus configuration of objects on opposing trajectories, with a tone that is presented simultaneously.
Pre-coincidence brain activity predicts the perceptual outcome of streaming/bouncing motion display
When two identical visual discs move toward each other on a two-dimensional visual display, they can be perceived as either “streaming through” or “bouncing off” each other after their coincidence.
Aging and Audio-Visual and Multi-Cue Integration in Motion
Control experiments demonstrated that the observed differences between younger and older subjects resulted from neither age-related changes in retinal illuminance nor age- related changes in hearing, pointing to weakened inter- and intra-modal integration with aging.
Sensitivity and Bias in the Resolution of Stream-Bounce Stimuli
A decisional account of the sound-induced switch from mostly streaming to mostly bouncing responses in audiovisual stream-bounce displays is supported.
Effects of Transient and Nontransient Changes of Surface Feature on Object Correspondence
This study investigated the effect of feature change on object correspondence using the object-reviewing paradigm and found that object-specific preview benefits were reduced or eliminated when feature change was transient, but the benefits were not affected when feature changes were nontransient.
Motion-Induced Scotoma
Artificial scotomas created when a moving object instantaneously crossed a gap, jumping ahead and continuing its otherwise smooth motion were investigated, finding that prolonged exposure to motion trajectories with a gap led to further shrinking of the gap.
Sensory memory of structure-from-motion is shape-specific
It seems that sensory memory of SFM (which underlies priming of ambiguous rotation) engages higher-level representations of object surface and shape, which provides a commutative measure for the similarity of object shapes.
Perceptual adaptation to structure-from-motion depends on the size of adaptor and probe objects, but not on the similarity of their shapes
The disparate specificities of perceptual adaptation and sensory memory for identical SFM objects suggest that the two aftereffects engage distinct neural representations, consistent with recent brain imaging results.
Postdictive Modulation of Visual Orientation
The results suggest that the postdictive modulation of visual Orientation stems from spatiotemporal integration of visual orientation on the basis of a slow feature matching process.
Breaking Surface Feature Continuity of Previewed Mask Reinstates Object Substitution Masking12
Perception of a briefly presented target is impaired when a sparse surrounding mask (e.g., four-dot) persists after target offset compared to when the target and mask offset together (i.e., object


Postcoincidence trajectory duration affects motion event perception
The results clearly reject the possibility of the cognitive-bias hypothesis about the bounce-inducing effect and suggest rather that the bounces-inducing factors have to interact with the PCT for some period after the coincidence to be maximally effective.
Effects of the orientation of moving objects on the perception of streaming/bouncing motion displays
The results indicated that an object whose orientation was parallel to its motion path strengthened the spatiotemporal integration of local motion signals along a straight motion path, resulting in the perception of streaming.
Attentional Modulation in Perception of Visual Motion Events
The results suggest that attention may facilitate the perception of object motion as continuing in the same direction as in the past.
Collisions between Moving Visual Targets: What Controls Alternative Ways of Seeing an Ambiguous Display?
The results suggest that perceived direction reflects the operation of neural constraints that mirror the constraints operating upon moving objects in the three-dimensional natural world.
Influence of motion on chromatic detection
Threshold was elevated in the coherent condition compared to the random condition, and threshold decreased with an increase in speed, which can be accounted for by temporal integration or spatial integration.
Perceptual pairing of colour and motion
Bounce effect seen in opposite motions
Kanizsa's (1979) ostrich appeared as if he were dancing in a very curious fashion. His legs actually passed one another but they seemed to be bouncing back to their original end point. The bounce
Object property encoding and change blindness in multiple object tracking
It is concluded that a colour change will be detected a lot more efficiently if attention is drawn to its transient, and when a simultaneous mud splash hides the transient signal, subjects are significantly less efficient in detecting the change.
Directional Bias in the Perception of Translating Patterns
The results of three experiments suggest that a directional bias in the perception of moving patterns is mediated not only by the direction of the previous stimulation, but also by the velocity of that stimulation.
