A current debate exists as to whether locomotion on foot is guided by optic flow (the apparent motion of the world when the subject is moving) [1–4] or perceived direction [5]. Rushton et al. [5] have shown that the path taken by a participant wearing prism spectacles is described reasonably by a model predicting trajectory from visual direction. We repeated Rushton et al.’s [5] experiment but manipulated the amount of additional information available. Our experiment involved participants… CONTINUE READING
