Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses motion-based segmentation and the use of bivectorial transparent and nontransparent stimuli for the study of motion adaptation and attentional selection. It proves that motion is processed in multiple stages in relation to psychophysics, neurophysiology, and brain imaging. Transparent motion, neural mechanisms involved in motion segmentation and integration, motion aftereffect and its adaptation to transparent motion, and attention are also presented.

Keywords: motion processing; motion-based segmentation; motion aftereffect; perception; psychophysics
