Dr. Post's research is concerned with a variety of topics regarding spatially-directed behavior. One area of research concerns the problems of spatial orientation and motion perception faced by moving observers. A particular focus of this research is the relationship between eye movements and motion perception. The essential question is whether or not some distortions of motion perception result from the eye movement systems. Much current research concerns whether action is directed on the basis of the same spatial information that is used in perception. That is, does the brain use different spatial maps for conscious perception and spatially-directed behavior?
