Dependence of apparent movement of a subjective figure on the perceptual fate of inducing elements

Abstract. In a series of demonstrations, two stimulus frames that contained subjective figures were alternated. It is shown that the perception of apparent movement of a subjective figure depends upon the configuration of the inducing stimuli and whether or not conditions of presentation favor the short-range or long-range process in apparent movement. Those conditions that favor the long-range process result in global apparent movement of the subjective figure. However, those conditions that favor the short-range process may prevent apparent movement of the subjective figure, or may result in a kind of apparent movement that is qualitatively different from that seen when similar physical contours are alternated. These results are interpreted in terms of the assumed differences between the short-range and long-range processes.
