Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A theory for the visual perception of object motion
by Norman, Joseph W., Ph.D., Florida Atlantic University, 2014, 230; 3647571
Abstract (Summary)

The perception of visual motion is an integral aspect of many organisms' engagement with the world. In this dissertation, a theory for the perception of visual object-motion is developed. Object-motion perception is distinguished from objectless-motion perception both experimentally and theoretically. A continuous-time dynamical neural model is developed in order to generalize the findings and provide a theoretical framework for continued refinement of a theory for object-motion perception. Theoretical implications as well as testable predictions of the model are discussed.
