Previous studies [e.g. Baker & Hess, 1998. Vision Research, 38, 1211-1222] have shown that perceived direction in displays composed of multiple, limited-lifetime, Gabor micropatterns (G) is influenced by movement both at the fine spatial scale of the internal luminance modulation (first-order motion) and the coarse spatial scale of the Gaussian, contrast window (second-order motion). However it is presently indeterminate as to whether this pattern of results is indicative of the processes by… CONTINUE READING
