Show Summary Details


One type of motion-defined form is keeping a figure steady but moving the texture inside the figure in relation to that outside it. This chapter presents studies on this type of motion-defined form using patients and children. As seen in the results, in patients with multiple sclerosis, cortical lesions, amblyopia, or dyslexia, motion-defined form processing may not be associated with the processing of simple motion stimuli.

Keywords: motion-defined form; letter test; multiple sclerosis; motion processing; cortical lesions
