A royal News!

Congratulations to Marco, who's latest paper just got accepted for publication in Proceedings of the Royal Society.

Marco Turi and  David C. Burr

How our perceptual experience of the world remains stable and continuous despite the frequent repositioning eye movements remains very much a mystery. One possibility is that our brain actively constructs spatiotopic representation of the world, which is anchored in external—or at least head-centred—coordinates. In this study, we show that the positional motion aftereffect (the change in apparent position after to motion) is spatially selective in external rather than retinal coordinates, whereas the classic aftereffect (the illusion of motion after prolonged inspection of a moving source) is selective in retinotopic coordinates. The results provide clear evidence for a spatiotopic map in humans: one which can be influenced by image motion.
