Abstract. Sensitivity cheracteristics and spatial integration properties of the motion-detection system are compared with those of the system responsible for the movement aftereffect (MAE), elicited by the same stimulus. This provides new information about the mechanisms involved in MAE generation. A screen was divided into a chequerboard where the squares were filled with random-pixel arrays moving in opposite directions. Changing the size of the squares produced drastic changes in the percept during the adaptation phase and in the MAE during the test phase. One striking new phenomenon that is described is 'structure from MAE'. The results indicate that the receptive fields of units involved in eliciting the MAE are larger than the receptive-field sizes of units involved in detection and segregation of motion components in the stimulus. Furthermore, the results suggest that the receptive fields contributing to the MAE are involved in complex interactions in which different local motion directions are integrated in pattern-specific ways.
