Motion perception

Motion perception is the process of inferring the speed and direction of objects that move in a visual scene given some visual input.

While this process appears straighforward to most observers, it has proven to be a hard problem from a computational perspective, and extraordinarily difficult to explain in terms of neural processing.

Motion perception has connections to both neurology (i.e. visual perception) and computer science.
