NATHER, Francisco Carlos  and  BUENO, José Lino Oliveira. Effect of static images with different representations of movement under the subjective perception of time. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2006, vol.19, n.2, pp.217-224. ISSN 0102-7972.

The study of the perception of movement and subjective time can be expanded with the utilization of images as visual stimuli. The aim of this work was to verify if two static images with different representations of movement would affect distinctly temporal perception. University students not trained in visual arts submitted to images with different suggestions of movement reproduced the time of presentation of the stimuli under the prospective paradigm. The results showed that the picture with the lesser suggestion of movement (Stimulus A) was judged shorter than the one with more suggestion of movement (Stimulus B), although both have been underestimated in relation to real duration. The analysis of the data of semantic differential scales, referred to 4 criteria of movement of judgment in static images, showed that stimulus A was judged having less movement than stimulus B. The conclusion was that the suggestion of movement in a static image extends the temporal experience.
