Objects in motion appear shifted in space. For global motion stimuli we can ask whether the shift depends on the local or global motion. We constructed arrays of randomly oriented Gaussian enveloped drifting sine gratings (dynamic Gabors) whose speed was set such that the normal component of motion was consistent with a single global velocity. The array appears shifted in space in the direction of the global motion. The size of the shift is the same as for arrays of uniformly oriented dynamic Gabors that are moving in the same direction at the same global speed. Arrays made up of vertically oriented gratings whose speeds were set to the horizontal component of the random array elements were shifted less far. This shows that motion-induced position shifts of coherently moving surface patches are generated after the completion of the global motion computation.
