BETA MOVEMENT

n. a form of optical illusion in which there is apparent movement in fixed images. When stationary stimuli are presented successively across the visual field, they appear to be perceived as a single, smoothly-moving stimulus. First described by Prague-born psychologist Max Wertheimer in 1912.

BETA MOVEMENT: "The beta movement produces visual effects similar to those seen in movies and animation."
