What is Motion Coherence in terms of Sensation & Perception? Is it just the perception of movement by the Middle Temporal visual area in the motor cortex?

Human vision is very, very good at processing motion. But that processing is more than just detection of motion. There is a complex relationship established to “understand” the motion, effectively predicting the future path of the moving object. That’s how it’s possible to hit a Major League curve ball, but the feature probably evolved in hunting/being hunted scenarios.

Motion Coherence allows you to think about the future motion and respond to it even though you haven’t seen it yet.
