We sought to determine whether or not motion-from-texture mechanisms have access to monocular input. Adopting a strategy used by Kolb and Braun (1995. Nature, 377, 336-338), we created drifting textures that were invisible to purely binocular processes. Monocular signals readily conveyed motions defined by local orientation and flicker. However, when left- and right-eye signals were displayed simultaneously, only flicker motion was visible. We conclude that motion-from-texture mechanisms do not have access to monocular input. Further evidence suggests that motion from texture involves attentional tracking.
