The brain's ability to detect movement within the retinal image is crucial not only for determining the trajectories of moving objects, but also for identifying and interpreting image motion resulting from eye to head movements. This book summarizes our knowledge of how information about image motion is encoded in the brain. Features: * Valuable reference source for those involved in the rapidly expanding area of motion perception. * Strong emphasis on integration of physiological, computation, and psychophysical approaches. * Topics include : Principles of local motion detection, Inputs to local motion detectors, Integration of motion signals, Higher-order interpretation of motion, Motion detection and eye movements.

Table of contents

Part 1 Introduction: motion detection - an overview. Part 2 Principles of local motion detection: computational and neural constraints for the measurement of local visual motion; motion processing in the primate cerebral cortex; the psychophysics of motion perception. Part 3 Inputs to local motion detectors: motion detector models - psychophysical evidence; the detection of second-order motion; physiological studies of motion inputs. Part 4 Integration of motion signals: models of two-dimensional motion perception; visual motion integration - a neurophysiological and psychophysical perspective; spatial integration of local motion signals. Part 5 High-order interpretation of motion: optic and retinal flow; motion-in-depth; structure from motion. Part 5 motion and detection and eye movements: visual motion caused by movements of the eye, head, and body; the visual drive for smooth eye movements.
