(p.467) Chapter 63 Low-Level Motion Illusions
The Oxford Compendium of Visual Illusions

Stuart Anstis

Oxford University Press

Visual motion stimuli can be defined as changes in luminance over space and time. Both kinds of change can alter the perceived speed and direction of motion. This chapter covers crossover motion; reverse phi, in which motion between a positive and a negative appears to go backward; the bicycle spokes illusion; the footsteps effect, in which smooth movement looks jerky if the background is striped; zigzag motion, whose direction appears to change with viewing distance; and the furrow illusion of motion, whose direction appears to change when viewed by the fovea versus the periphery. Other concepts covered include the chopstick illusion and the footsteps illusion.

Keywords:   motion perception, apparent motion, footsteps illusion, chopstick illusion
