Two bistable apparent-movement displays (i.e. ones that generate two qualitatively different kinds of movement percepts under different conditions) were compared. They were designed to be as similar as possible spatially, and were studied with identical stimulus manipulations to see whether changes in balance between their bistable percepts would be similar. Results show that the two displays had different response characteristics to the same stimulus manipulations. Two models of motion perception that have previously predicted at least one kind of bistable apparent motion were considered in terms of how well they address the current data. As yet, neither model has been shown to predict the motion states and bistable behavior of the two displays studied here. It is concluded that results of the type described here (specifically, differences in the psychophysical functions yielded by two structurally similar but qualitatively different bistable displays) present a challenge for theories of motion perception.
