The Effect of Perceived Motion-in-Depth on Time Perception
Ono, Fuminori; Kitazawa, Shigeru
Cognition, v115 n1 p140-146 Apr 2010
The present study examined the effect of perceived motion-in-depth on temporal interval perception. We required subjects to estimate the length of a short empty interval starting from the offset of a first marker and ending with the onset of a second marker. The size of the markers was manipulated so that the subjects perceived a visual object as approaching or receding. We demonstrated that the empty intervals between markers was perceived as taking shorter to view when the object was perceived as approaching than when it was perceived as receding. We found in addition that the motion-in-depth effect disappeared when the shape continuity between the first and second marker was broken or when the object approached but missed the face. We conclude that anticipated collision of an approaching object altered perception of an empty interval. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
