Abstract : The motion projects described in this report include the specification of low level motion detection systems which are both Fourier and NonFourier in kind, investigations in visual persistence in motion, higher level issues in structure from motion, cue integration and decision theory, and object recognition. The attention projects concern the human ability to process information arriving simultaneously at different locations in the visual field and to coordinate concurrent visual and auditory inputs. A common goal of projects was the attention description of the human abilities and limitations in the allocation of mental processing resources, and correspondingly, the theoretical derivation of visual and auditory stimulus codes that take optimum advantage of human abilities.
