Abstract : The experimental results indicate that autokinesis may be explained within the context of Duncker's theory of relative displacement. The nature of the displacement was found to be, in these experiments, a shift in the egocentric visual framework as mediated by felt rather than objective eye position. An explanation of the shift in felt eye position based on a change in afferent stimulation impinging on the eye is proposed. Implications of the theory for future research including an investigation of auditory autokinesis and felt head position are discussed. (Author)
