Rotation and radical motion thresholds support a two-stage model of differential-motion analysis

Rotation and radical motion thresholds support a two-stage model of differential-motion analysis

Perception 25(1): 5-26

Lower motion thresholds for rotational and radial flow have been measured for stimuli consisting of four closely packed circular apertures, each containing patches of drifting grating or plaid. Detection and direction thresholds were measured for gratings and plaids as a function of the relative orientation of the pattern components. There was a similarity between both types of threshold, supporting the existence of specialised rotation and radial-flow detectors. Further, thresholds increased with the relative component orientation for both gratings and plaids. This suggests that component information from a first stage, tuned spatiotemporally and to orientation, is being used directly to compute the optic flow in a two-stage process. A model based on this architecture is described by means of simple template receptive-field arrays with separable temporal and spatial tuning at the first stage.
