A novel display is described which stimulates both the long-range and the short-range motion detecting processes simultaneously, but with opposing directions of movement. The direction in which the stimulus appears to move depends on retinal eccentricity and element size, but adaptation to the display always produces a motion aftereffect (MAE) direction opposite to the direction of the short-range component. The display may offer insights into the properties of the two-process motion detecting system.
