The dynamics of perception and action.

Abstract: How might one account for the organization in behavior without attributing it to an internal control structure? The present article develops a theoretical framework called behavioral dynamics that integrates an information-based approach to perception with a dynamical systems approach to action. For a given task, the agent and its environment are treated as a pair of dynamical systems that are coupled mechanically and informationally. Their interactions give rise to the behavioral dynamics, a vector field with… Show more

“…Ecological dynamics integrates key ideas from ecological psychology [14], according to which behaviour is regulated by information that arises from an individual-environment complex to continuously guide and shape the athlete's actions.. Through experience and practice, the individual and the performance environment become more tightly integrated as a self-organising and dynamical system coupled by information [8,23]. According to the theory of direct perception [14], perception is an active process.…”

“…The key challenge of such an approach is to capture the most relevant order parameter that best describes the collective system dynamics of a performer acting in a performance environment [21]. The manipulation of control parameters -that is, nonspecific parameter(s) moving the system through a variety of state changes [22]-is a primary step in characterising the order parameters of a complex adaptive system [21] displaying self-organising tendencies [23] under a set of interacting constraints [13]. In complex nonlinear neurobiological systems, self-organisation is the principle by which "temporal, spatial or spatial-temporal patterns evolve without being imposed on the system from the outside" (p. 56) [11].…”

“…This demonstrated that bimanual coordination laws are not the mere consequences of biomechanical or musculo-skeletal determiners, but can also be ruling when visual perception is the medium of the coupling. Therefore those laws are informational (Schöner and Kelso, 1988; Schöner, 1991; Kelso, 1994; Warren, 2006). Please note that in parallel several distinct frameworks have been developed and applied.…”

“…In contrast, continuous movements are regulated by an emergent timing system, which pertains to a dynamical systems perspective on motor control. According to this perspective, coordinated (regular) body movements are to a high extent the result of the motor system's dynamics, with a minimum of explicit, central control (Kelso, 1997;Thelen, 1991;Turvey, 1977;Warren, 2006). Concerning production rate, research has indicated that the mechanisms underlying the temporal control of rhythmic movements depend on the duration of the intervals (i.e., suprasecond or subsecond) that need to be timed (Lewis & Miall, 2003).…”
