Temporal Integration of Movement: The Time-Course of Motion Streaks Revealed by Masking

Alais, David; Apthorp, Deborah; Karmann, Anna; Cass, John


Temporal integration in the visual system causes fast-moving objects to leave oriented 'motion streaks' in their wake, which could be used to facilitate motion direction perception. Temporal integration is thought to occur over ≈100 ms in early cortex, although this has never been tested for motion streaks. Here we compare the ability of fast-moving ('streaky') and slow-moving fields of dots to mask briefly flashed gratings either parallel or orthogonal to the motion trajectory. Gratings were...[Show more]
