Abstract : The volume concerns investigations on some observable aspects of man's reaction to stimulation by motion at various rates in an experimental situation that allows the presentation of motion-stimulus in its almost irreducible simplicity. Since the fundamental physical variable is velocity and the reaction is closely related to perceptual processes, the investitation is termed 'psychophysical relations in the perception of velocity'. The aspects of reaction constitute a group of problems each of which is studied independently.
