We describe a new illusion in which a single stationary stimulus appears to undergo coherent global motion. Contrast relationships between the stimulus elements suggest the illusion arises via processing of Off- and On-channel signals that remain independent until after passing through low-level motion detectors. We propose that patterns of activation resulting from biphasic temporal impulse response functions in the magnocellular pathway are the basis of the illusion, and describe a model to account for the illusory motion percept.
