Do you feel like you’re moving?
 
Vection: illusion of making a stationary observer feel that they are in motion through the use of visual stimuli.
 
Naturally occurring linear vection: at a stop light, a car next to you starts moving and you perceive yourself as moving.
 
Big questions: What kind of visual stimulus should be used to induce vection?
 
I am currently writing a senior thesis on Linear Vection and specifically the influence of motion parallax on the perception of vection.
