Abstract
Our visual experience of the world often takes the form of events in which objects and/or other aspects of a scene (e.g., the layout) move or change over time. Understanding how the brain processes such "dynamic events" poses a major challenge for theories of perception, memory, and cognition. This Special Issue presents a series of papers related to one topic in this area representational momentum the systematic tendency for observers to remember an event as extending beyond its actual ending point. For example, when observers view a moving target, that target is typically remembered as having travelled a little farther than it actually did.
