ANORTHOSCOPIC PERCEPTION

natural distortions created when a viewed stimulus is moving in a stilted or interrupted fashion. For example, when viewed through fence pickets, the spokes of a moving wagon wheel will appear curved as opposed to linear.

ANORTHOSCOPIC PERCEPTION: "Anorthoscopic perception refers to perceptual disturbances caused by the viewing of one stimulus when viewing is sporadically interrupted - potentially due to another stimulus being in front."
