Abstract

When observers who watched repeated alternations of a red contracting spiral and green expanding spiral were later shown stationary spirals, red and a green the red stationary spiral appeared to be expanding and the green stationary spiral appeared to be contracting. These color-contingent motion after effects complement reports of motion-contingent color aftereffects and suggest that both may reflect adaptation of detectors specific to color and motion.
