Abstract and Keywords

This chapter presents a selective overview of motion perception, starting with its early philosophical underpinnings. Its role in Gestalt psychology is highlighted including the discovery of the relativity of motion perception and form–motion interactions. The use of reference frames in the computation of motion is illustrated with examples, leading to its current implications for non-retinotopic processing.
