Adaptation state of the local-motion-pooling units determines the nature of the motion aftereffect to transparent motion

Edwards, Mark; Cassanello, Carlos; Kalia, Kanupriya


When observers adapt to a transparent-motion stimulus, the resulting motion aftereffect (MAE) is typically in the direction opposite to the vector average of the component directions. It has been proposed that the reason for this is that it is the adaptation state at the local-level (i.e. of the local-motion-pooling units) that determines the nature of the MAE (Vidnyanszky et al. Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 6(4), 157-161). The adapting stimuli used in these experiments typically consisted of...[Show more]
