Sample text

The first of the above modes is similar to the broken wheel phenomenon with linear translation substituted for rotation. This mode is seen whenever the viewer fixates at a stationary point on the screen and does not allow his eyes to track the moving train. The second mode is probably the result of eye tracking movements. Suppose the viewer tracks the figure perfectly, that is, the "train" does not move relative to his eye. From the fact that the picture remained unchanged, but eye tracking motions were needed to keep the picture stable, the implication is that the whole figure underwent a translation.

However, even when the object is unfamiliar. the visual system is often able to identify the changing views as representing a single object in motion or change. Since the only information available to the visual system is the appearance of the object, it seems puzzling that the system is capable of such identification on the basis of radically disparate views. 1 is performed on the basis of past familiarity, recogmuon of the viewed objects, or similarity between complete views. However if the match is established between elementary tokens via the scheme described in the current chapter, then familiarity.

Z. Thus, it is the motion of the constituent elements rather than the similarity between the complete forms that governs the matching process. To sum up the discussion of demonstration 5: 1. 3 established between their components. 2. There are no indications that structured figures are part of the basic elements domain, or that the correspondence process is based on figural similarity. All of the demonstrations described above support the claim that no elaborate form analysis must precede the correspondence operation, and that the motion of complex figures is constructed from the motion of their constituents.
