Description/Abstract

Motion-induced blindness is a striking phenomenon in which salient static visual stimuli "disappear" for seconds at a time in the presence of specific moving patterns. Here we investigate whether the phenomenon is due to surface completion of the moving patterns. Stereo-depth information was added to the motion stimulus to create depth ordering between the static and moving components of the display. Depth ordering consistent with the perceptual occlusion of the static elements increased motion-induced blindness whereas placing the moving components behind the static elements decreased the static dot disappearance. In a second experiment we used an induced surface stimulus configuration to drive the motion-induced blindness phenomenon as further evidence of the importance of surface completion and interactions during visual processing.
