    Factors affecting our judgement of the speed of visual motion were investigated. Two types of judgement were made: perceived speed relative to a standard comparison stimulus, and discrimination between the speeds of similar stimuli. The factors affecting these two judgements were found to be doubly dissociable, suggesting that they may be constrained by processing at different levels of the visual hierarchy. The results are discussed in terms of the 3-D interpretation of visual image motion, and related to possible neural substrates.
