Temporal properties of the short-range process in apparent motion

Abstract. A study is reported of the perception of random-dot two-frame apparent motion in which the durations of each exposure and the intcrstimulus interval between them were varied. The results arc largely consistent with the rule that, for optimal motion detection, a portion of each exposure must fall within the same time interval of about 40 ms. In addition, motion perception is separably dependent on the displacement from one exposure to the next and on the time interval between those exposures, rather than on the 'velocity' implied by their ratio.
