Abstract

We investigate the global integration of local motion direction signals in amblyopia, in a task where performance is equated between normal and amblyopic eyes at the single element level. We use an equivalent noise model to derive the parameters of internal noise and number of samples, both of which we show are normal in amblyopia for this task. This result is in apparent conflict with a previous study in amblyopes showing that global motion processing is defective in global coherence tasks [ Vision Res. 43, 729 (2003) ]. A similar discrepancy between the normalcy of signal integration [ Vision Res. 44, 2955 (2004) ] and anomalous global coherence form processing has also been reported [ Vision Res. 45, 449 (2005) ]. We suggest that these discrepancies for form and motion processing in amblyopia point to a selective problem in separating signal from noise in the typical global coherence task.
