Abstract

In the Fröhlich effect, the perceived onset of a moving stimulus is displaced in the direction of the motion. Two experiments were conducted in order to verify if cognitive factors had an influence on the Fröhlich effect. In the first one we studied the rule of the rectangular window in which the stimulus moves through three experimental conditions (without window condition, long window condition, short window condition), whereas in the second one we used an arrow as a stimulus instead of a rectangle.

Our results not only replicated the Fröhlich effect, but they also allowed us to control other factors that had an influence on our experimental setup: stimulus and window characteristics.
