Project title: Human Response to Time Shifts in Correlated Motion

Project description (50-100 words suggested): This project involves a human psychophysics experiment in which correlated and anti-correlated stimuli shifted in time will be shown to human test subject. The purpose is to discover the time threshold which a human can determine if the shifted stimuli are correlated or anti-correlated.
