Research Article: Motion Extrapolation in the Central Fovea

Date Published: March 15, 2012 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Zhuanghua Shi, Romi Nijhawan, David Whitney. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0033651 Abstract: Neural transmission latency would introduce a spatial lag when an object moves across the visual field, if the latency was not compensated. A visual predictive mechanism has been proposed, which overcomes such spatial lag by extrapolating the … Continue reading
