    Description

    Motion vision plays crucial roles in the life of animals, in controlling locomotion, in foraging, in predator evasion and in communication. Although we know a great deal about the computational and neural principles of motion vision, information on the conditions for motion vision in natural environments is still very rudimentary. We will study movement-based displays in reptiles by applying tools, which we have recently developed for motion signal analysis, video playback and signalling robotics, to describe and analyse natural motion signal distributions, the design of movement-based visual displays, and their function in a novel and comprehensive approach to understanding the evolution of displays in a visual-ecological context.
