The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the effect of human magnocellular (M)-pathway disruption on global motion perception. Coherence thresholds for global motion direction discrimination in random dot patterns were determined at slow and moderate dot speeds: (1) after adaptation to full-field sinusoidal flicker or a steady gray field, and (2) on a red or a gray background. Adaptation to flicker and a red background increased motion coherence thresholds relative to the gray baseline… CONTINUE READING
