Brief description This project is an investigation into human vision, a priority area for ARC. Its aim is to discover how photons from moving objects leave traces in the human visual system that assist it to determine the path of local motion and the structure of global motion. Its theoretical significance is that it will lead to substantial revisions of current models of human visual processing. Its practical significance is that it will provide a theoretical basis for the design of display systems that are more effective in conveying information about motion to human observers and eliminate errors inherent in existing systems.
