Abstract

This study seeks to clarify the reasons for some of the differences in the published data on chromatic motion perception, and to provide further support for the existence of a low-level motion mechanism sensitive to purely chromatic change. Observers discriminated the direction of motion of displaced sinusoidal gratings in the presence of a static grating mask (or pedestal). Each component of the stimulus was independently described in cardinal colour space and calibrated for subjective equiluminance using multiple methods. The motion structure, stimulus size, temporal frequency, contrast, relative phase and chromatic properties were all varied parametrically and the data cast in terms of pr..
