MOTION AFTEREFFECT (MAE)

is an illusion where participants believe a stationary background or image is in actual fact moving when it isn't after fixating at a moving stimulus for a prolonged period.

MOTION AFTEREFFECT (MAE): "The MAE or motion after effect results in individuals believing an object is still moving when it is in-fact stationary."
