The flash-lag phenomenon: object motion and eye movements.

  title={The flash-lag phenomenon: object motion and eye movements.},
  author={Romi Nijhawan},

An object flashed briefly in a given location, the moment another moving object arrives in the same location, is perceived by observers as lagging behind the moving object (flash-lag effect). Does the flash-lag effect occur if the retinal image of the moving object is rendered stationary by smooth pursuit of the moving object?
