Want to play a game?
Researchers at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario are looking for your help, online, in a video test of motion perception.
Follow this link and follow the blinking lights.
This video game will test participants on 10 tests of motion perception and biological motion perception. On each test you will be given instructions on how to complete it. Before you begin each test, you will have an option to do a practice session to familiarize with the procedure. You will be asked questions such as ‘Which way are most of the dots moving on the screen, left or right?’ or ‘Which way is the person facing, left or right?’. All responses will be done with the mouse by clicking one of two choices. It will take you about 45-60 minutes to complete all 10 levels (each level will take between 3 and 10 minutes), depending on how long you take on each level. At the end of each level you will be given a score of your performance as it compares to all the previous players who have completed it. The feedback will also provide an explanation of what your score means in relation to the global average.
