Relation between perceived depth and perceived motion in uniform flow fields

Reports on 3 experiments with 17 adult observers that examined the nature of the perceptual linkage between perceived depth and perceived motion in bidirectional uniform velocity fields. In such displays there is systematic misperception of both the speeds and the directions of motion of visual objects. Speed and direction of perceived motion were related to objective velocity by the addition of a uniform velocity component across the visual field. It is proposed that this uniform component may be the result of compensation for incorrectly registered ocular rotation and that such an account may also apply to classical center-surround induced motion effects.
