When two superimposed moving dot fields are presented simultaneously, their axes of movement appear shifted away from each other. The shift only occurs when the two directions are within 90° of each other, and is directly comparable to that which results from adapting to one and testing on the other direction. This effect is taken as further evidence for a distribution-shift model in the direction domain. It is argued that the currently accepted model of movement detection, which restricts itself to comparisons only between oppositely-tuned direction detectors, should be elaborated to include comparisons across a very wide range of detectors.
