In this paper, a selective visual attention module based on motion stimuli is introduced for the purpose of detecting ROI(region of interest) or FOA(focus of attention) in motion pictures. Previous approaches rarely analyze motion fields and incorporate the result to feature integration for the detection of ROI. Analysis of motion fields in our approach is in direct contrast to some of the previous studies of selective visual attention module. Motion that presents temporal visual saliency in an aspect between two successive frames is analyzed based on psychological studies in "DORF(double opponent receptive fields)" and "NF(noise filtration)" in MT(middle temporal cortex). Analyzed results are integrated based on the theory of "motion integration" in MT to obtain a single conspicuous region. Experiments through a human subjective evaluation showed generally accepted results.
