Paper Abstract

The paper concerns the perceptual movement image produced without actual target displacement. The perceptual movement image is variously named the beta movement, phiphenomena, or apparent movement. The production of the movement images depends upon such physical factors as the proper distance between targets, the proper time interval between presentation of the targets, and the target intensities. The influence of these physical conditions on the perceptual movement images and their application are discussed in the paper; specifically, the emphasis is placed on the measurement methods. Psychological research in this area may provide some clues for designing optical instruments.
