Sensitivity to the acceleration of looming stimuli
The aim of this study was to determine if observers could discriminate between looming stimuli simulating targets approaching the observers at either constant or non-constant speeds. Discrimination between accelerating and constant-speed approaches improved after 70-90 trials for accelerations >2 m/s2. For lower accelerations the ability to discriminate was poor regardless of the trial number. Following the learning phase, observers were able to identify accelerating targets from constant-speed...[Show more]
