The motion aftereffect was measured using both static and dynamic test stimuli in a group of normal observers and a group of strabismic amblyopes. Amblyopes exhibited a reduced direct aftereffect for both static and dynamic stimuli and only two of the eight amblyopes exhibited any measurable interocular transfer for either test stimulus. It is hard to explain these results in terms of either the known spatial (contrast sensitivity and positional sensitivity) or motion deficits previously reported in amblyopia. These results suggest a primary motion deficit in amblyopia affecting both the static and dynamic motion aftereffects.
