The motion aftereffect and other motion adaptation effects have proved useful in uncovering the mechanisms of human motion vision. In this talk I will review work on the motion aftereffect, describe the various phenomena, and outline what this work has taught us about human vision. I will also talk about the interaction of motion processing and spatial vision and phenomena such as motion induced spatial jitter and motion induced blindness in which motion influences visual experience.
