    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

The motion aftereffect (MAE) is an illusory drift of a physically stationary pattern induced by prolonged viewing of a moving pattern. Depending on the nature of the test pattern the MAE can be phenomenally different. This difference in appearance has led to the suggestion that different underlying mechanisms may be responsible and several reports show that this might be the case. Here, we tested whether differences in MAE duration obtained with stationary test patterns and dynamic test pa tterns can be explained by a single underlying mechanism. We find the results support the existence of (at least) two mechanisms. The two mechanisms show different characteristics: the static MAE (i.e. the MAE tested with a static test pattern) is almost completely stored when the static test is preceded by a dynamic test; in contradistinction, the dynamic MAE is not stored when dynamic testing is preceded by a static test pattern.
