Time to decrease the weight attached to looming?

Publication Summary

Rind and Simmons[1] have provided an excellent description of how neurones respond to looming stimuli. Unfortunately, however, their article missed some of the recent trends in the story of how humans judge time to contact (ttc). In particular, recent work suggests that previous accounts of human timing behaviour might have exaggerated the role of looming and neglected the part of binocular information.
