There are a number of observations that do not fit neatly into the common “back pocket” model of primate motion processing. Space-time receptive fields are not ideal speed-tuned motion detectors. In addition, although some neurons are tuned for speed, some speed-coded neurons monotonically reduce their firing rate with speed and some monotonically increase their firing rate. Paradoxically, some neurons respond well to plaids but not to gratings. A unified model of motion processing of 1D and 2D pattern will be described that computes image velocity and also attempts to accommodate these findings.
