PERCEIVING OBJECTS MOVING THROUGH SPACE AND TIME: “WHERE” AND “WHEN” ARE INTERTWINED

Abstract

Different theories on motion perception have been based on the evidence that the perceptual system makes errors in the localization of objects. Most of these theories are based on the assumption that inherent delays lead to mislocalization when things move or, more generally, when things change: errors in time translate into spatial errors. Even if this assumption has been often criticized, and evidence has been found against this view, it is still widely accepted. Data from behavioural, psychophysical and physiological studies suggest instead a dynamical inter-relationship between space and time, the rules of which are still to be revealed.
