Abstract: Tasks such as steering, braking, and intercepting moving objects constitute a class of behaviors, known as visually guided actions, which are typically carried out under continuous control on the basis of visual information. Several decades of research on visually guided action have resulted in an inventory of control laws that describe for each task how information about the sufficiency of one's current state is used to make ongoing adjustments. Although a considerable amount of important research has been ge… Show more

“…Although this remained unnoticed by the participants, this alteration of the movement-target correspondence may have been interpreted as an increased variability of the visuomotor system, leading to a conservative, yet unconscious, strategy affecting the visual perception of reachability (Fajen, 2005;Gabbard et al, 2006;Gabbard, Ammar, & Rodrigues, 2005). Some previous data support this interpretation by showing that increasing uncertainty in a sensorimotor task affects perceptual judgments of object properties (Ernst & Banks, 2002), as well as perceptual learning (Barthelmé & Mamassian, 2009;Shibata, Yamagishi, Ishii, & Kawato, 2009).…”

“…Since Berkeley's famous essay on vision (Berkeley, 1709(Berkeley, /1732), theorists of perception from different disciplines have defended the idea that the experience of spatiality may proceed from an interpretation of sensory information through reference to the possibilities of action (e.g., Bergson, 1896Bergson, /1912Gibson, 1979;Husserl, 1907Husserl, /1973Merleau-Ponty, 1945;Poincaré, 1907Poincaré, /1921. To date, convincing arguments in the empirical sciences have been provided supporting the view that the perception of the external world is under the influence of, or even scaled by, actionspecific constraints (Barsalou, 2008;Fajen, 2005;Gallese, 2007;Witt & Proffitt, 2008), when, for instance, walking through obstacles (Warren & Whang, 1987), climbing stairs or hills (Bhalla & Proffitt, 1999;Warren, 1984), or manually interacting with objects (Carello, Grosofsky, Reichel, Solomon, & Turvey, 1989;Witt, Proffitt, & Epstein, 2004).…”

“…The central question in this program has been: "What specifying variable in the ambient array is used to perform a particular task?" (see Fajen, 2005, for a nice overview). Although the theory of direct perception has gained credibility over the past couple of decades or so, several empirical studies have revealed inadequacies in the concept of information as specification.…”
