The negative aftereffect of motion as a function of test stimulus texture
Cann, Michael Arthur
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the texture of the test stimulus and the rate of the negative after-effect of motion. An interaction theory based on contour phenomena was proposed to account for the effects of texture. The recent clinical literature has consisted mainly of studies which attempt to use the negative after-effect to diagnose brain damage. These studies have produced equivocal results. Systematic examination of the parameters of the after-effect has been limited by a lack of adequate techniques. Leads furnished by te earlier European literature on the effect have been neglected [TRUNCATED]
