Abstract : Taylor's psychophysical theory of figural aftereffects was used to predict the effect of changes in illumination of inspection and test fields on the amount and the rate of decay of the rotary motion after-effect. As predicted, the brighter inspection disc produced more after-effect, while the brighter test disc produced a smaller and faster-decaying after-effect.
