In my physics class, to analyze motion of an object, we use a ticker timer that places dots on a piece of paper. Knowing the time interval for these dots and measuring the distance between dots we can determine the speed of the object. Yet as humans we can quickly tell whether an object such as a car moving at a high speed or low speed without such equipment. How does the brain do this? Do we have some type of built-in ticker timer? What is the current theory on how humans detect motion?
