The sensory systems of animals have evolved to meet the demands of functionally critical events. Animals that rely on visual motion cues must ignore irrelevant movement and only attend to certain characteristics that warrant further consideration.

Here we examine whether differences in the actual motion characteristics of a simulated prey item influence predatory behaviour. We begin...[Show more]
