"A man's mind can't stay in time the way his body does."
'Akinetopsia is a condition in which stationary objects are generally perceived fairly normally but moving objects are not. Zihl, van Cramon, and Mai (1983) studied LM, a woman with akinetopsia who had suffered bilateral damage to the motion area (V5/MT). She was good at locating stationary objects by sight, she had good colour discrimination, and her binocular visual functions (e.g., stereoscopic depth) were normal, but her motion perception was grossly deficient. According to Zihl et al.:

She had difficulty…in pouring tea or coffee into a cup because the fluid appeared frozen, like a glacier. In addition, she could not stop pouring at the right time since she was unable to perceive the movement in the cup (or a pot) when the fluid rose….In a room where more than two people were walking she felt very insecure…because “people were suddenly here or there but I have not seen them moving.”’
