During the past 25 years, the field of space and motion perception has rapidly advanced. Once thought to be distinct perceptual modes, space and motion are now thought to be closely linked. Perception of Space andMotion provides a comprehensive review of perception and vision research literature, including new developments in the use of sound and touch in perceiving space and motion. Other topics include the perception of structure from motion, spatial layout,and information obtained in static and dynamic stimulation.

Key Features

Spatial layout

Structure from motion

Information on static and dynamic stimulation (visual, acoustic, and haptic)


Academics and researchers studying psychophysics and perception, vision researchers, and cognitive psychologists.

@qu:The perception of space and motion have been central to the analysis of perception in the 20th century. While the record has been one of steady progress, the last twenty-five years have been marked by special promise. Space and motion were traditionally considered separate domains in the study of perception, but now it is clear that the two are closely linked. The aim of this volume is to put the interested reader in contact with the contemporary empirical and theoretical statusof investigation in the two domains...We believe that this volume will be the canonical source for years to come." @source:--WILLIAM EPSTEIN AND SHEENA ROGERS
