Motion and color cognition
Motion and color cognition is a branch of cognitive neuroscience devoted to using brain imaging, psychophysical experiments, and computational modeling to understand the interactions between motion and color processing in the human visual system.
The relationships between the perceptions of color and visual motion are complex and intriguing. Evidence from patients with certain rare forms of damage to the cerebral cortex indicates that color and motion are to some extent processed separately within the visual system. This conclusion is buttressed by physiological evidence for separate neural pathways for the processing of color and motion and psychophysical evidence that the perception of motion in color displays is greatly reduced when the colors are isoluminant. However, experiments and demonstrations reveal that the perceptions of color and motion can interact. Motion can...
