Abstract Thirty-two Ss were required to estimate the apparent motion of stationary vertical lines viewed against a background of moving vertical lines when both patterns were seen by the same eye (monoptic conditions) or the center pattern was seen by one eye and the surrounds by the other eye (dichoptic conditions). The stationary lines appeared to be moving from right to left as the surrounds moved left to right. The simultaneous motion contrast found under monoptic conditions was maximal when the center pattern and the surrounds were the same color and was reduced when they differed in color. The surrounds had limited influence on the apparent motion of the center section under dichoptic condition, and the color relationship was no longer important. Related color selectivity has been reported for the motion aftereffect (successive motion contrast), and both sets of data can be attributed to inlaibitory interaction (simultaneous in one case and successive in the other) among neural detectors tuned to wavelength as well as the direction of image motion.
