Abstract. It is known that local, monocular motion (short-range motion) can produce local distortions of visual space. We wanted to know if local monocular motion was both sufficient and necessary for producing motion-based spatial distortions. We used a previously reported dichoptic motion stimulus in which the directional motion signal is not present in either eye’s input but is only present after binocular combination. We show that such a stimulus can also induce perceived changes in spatial position. This suggests that local, monocular motion while being sufficient is not necessary for the production of motion-based illusions. It suggests that one source of motion signals responsible for this illusion is from binocular motion mechanisms.
