Discerning nonrigid 3D shapes from motion cues

A. Jain, Q. Zaidi
2011 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
The empirical and computational results of this study argue against the use of rigidity assumptions in extracting 3D shape from motion and for the primacy of motion deformations computed from motion shears  ...  Surprisingly, the abilities of observers to correctly infer nonrigid volumetric shapes from motion cues have not been measured, and structure from motion models predominantly use variants of rigidity assumptions  ...  This work was supported by National Eye Institute Grants EY07556 and EY13312 (to Q.Z.).  ...

The shape of motion perception: Global pooling of transformational apparent motion

M. F. Tang, J. E. Dickinson, T. A. W. Visser, M. Edwards, D. R. Badcock
2013 Journal of Vision  
Few studies have, however, systematically examined how TAM relates to conventional low-level motion-energy systems.  ...  In TAM, smooth apparent motion is perceived when shapes in certain spatiotemporal arrangements change. It has been argued that TAM relies on a separate high-level form-motion system.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by Australian Research Council grants DP130102580 to DRB, DP110104553 to DRB and ME, and DP120102313 to TAWV.  ...

2013 Attention, Perception & Psychophysics  
Specifically, we generated SFM objects with different threedimensional shapes and presented them in random order and with intervening blank periods.  ...  Here, we investigated perceptual priming for the apparent rotation in depth of ambiguous structure-from-motion (SFM) displays.  ...  Neural substrates of sensory memory The neural substrates of sensory memory for ambiguous appearance have been studied in several situations.  ...

Contrasting accounts of direction and shape perception in short-range motion: Counterchange compared with motion energy detection

Joseph Norman, Howard Hock, Gregor Schöner
2014 Attention, Perception & Psychophysics  
Human observers' ability to discriminate motion direction and use coherent motion information to segregate a region of a random cinematogram and determine its shape was tested; they performed better in  ...  The further advantage of counterchange, as compared with motion energy, detection for the perception of spatial shape-and depth-from-motion is discussed.  ...  Consequently, empirical evidence for asymmetry in motion and shape perception between the same-and inverted-polarity stimuli would indicate that motion perception was not determined solely by motion energy  ...

Global shape coding for motion-defined radial-frequency contours

Stéphane J.M. Rainville, Hugh R. Wilson
2005 Vision Research  
But while lowlevel and high-level mechanisms involved in shape-from-motion have been studied extensively, intermediate computational stages remain poorly understood.  ...  In the present study, we used motion-defined radial-frequency contours-or motion RFs-to probe intermediate stages involved in the computation of motion-defined shape.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (grant OP227224) and the National Institute of Health (grant EY002158) for their support.  ...

We present a system to recover the 3D shape and motion of a wide variety of quadrupeds from video.  ...  The system is tested on animal videos from several species, and shows accurate reconstructions of 3D shape and pose.  ...  Although the dataset is perhaps insufficient in size to train deep neural networks, the variety in animal shape and pose renders it suitable for evaluating quadruped joint prediction methods.  ...
