Motion and tilt aftereffects occur largely in retinal, not in object, coordinates in the Ternus-Pikler display

Recent studies have shown that a variety of aftereffects occurs in a non-retinotopic frame of reference. These findings have been taken as strong evidence that remapping of visual information occurs in a hierarchic manner in the human cortex with an increasing magnitude from early to higher levels. Other studies, however, failed to find non-retinotopic aftereffects. These experiments all relied on paradigms involving eye movements. Recently, we have developed a new paradigm, based on the Ternus-Pikler display, which tests retinotopic vs. non-retinotopic processing without the involvement of eye movements. Using this paradigm, we found strong evidence that attention, form, and motion processing can occur in a non-retinotopic frame of reference. Here, we show that motion and tilt aftereffects are largely retinotopic.
