'Rotating snakes' is an illusory figure in which the 'snakes' are perceived to rotate. We report that when the image moves smoothly, the snakes do not appear to rotate, although the retinal images are continuously refreshed. Therefore, to produce the illusion, the image should remain stationary (without being refreshed) for some time on the same retinal position.
