||Seeing two as one: Linking apparent motion and repetition blindness.
Examined the functional link for object tokens (episodic visual representations that mediate the ability to track visual events as they move about and change over time) in 2 seemingly disparate visual phenomena: apparent motion and repetition blindness (RB). 10 Ss were shown displays in which 2 sets of alphanumeric characters streamed in opposite directions across a computer screen in apparent motion. Results showed increased RB for targets appearing within a single apparent motion stream, relative to targets in different apparent motion streams. These results are inconsistent with refractory period or memory retrieval accounts of RB and support the role of object tokens in both apparent motion and RB.
