  1. 1. Infants’ Knowledge of Occluded Objects: Evidence of Early Spatiotemporal Representations

    Author : Gustaf Gredebäck; Claes von Hofsten; Janette Atkinson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; infants; occlusion; gaze; object representations; temporal; spatial; associative rule; extrapolation; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : This thesis demonstrates that infants represent temporarily non-visible, or occluded, objects. From 4 months of age, infants could accurately predict the reappearance of a moving object after 660 ms of non visibility; indicating accurate spatiotemporal representations. READ MORE

  2. 2. How hands shape the mind : The P400 as an index of manual actions and gesture perception

    Author : Marta Bakker; Gustaf Gredebäck; Amy Needham; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : goal-directed actions; action processing; EEG; ERP; P400; gestures; grasping; embodiment; social development; give-me gesture; dynamic system theory; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Being able to perform and understand actions is crucial for proper functioning in the social world. From birth, we use our bodies to act and to promote learning about ourselves, our environment and other people’s actions and intentions. Our mind is embodied; thus, our actions play a crucial role in cognitive and social development. READ MORE

  3. 3. An Embodied Account of Action Prediction

    Author : Claudia Elsner; Gustaf Gredebäck; Claes von Hofsten; Amanda L. Woodward; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Action prediction; biological motion; direct-matching; embodied simulation; eye movements; eye-tracking; give-me gesture; mirror neuron; motor cortex; point-light; social interaction; TMS; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Being able to generate predictions about what is going to happen next while observing other people’s actions plays a crucial role in our daily lives. Different theoretical explanations for the underlying processes of humans’ action prediction abilities have been suggested. READ MORE

  4. 4. Social causality in motion : Visual bias and categorization of social interactions during the observation of chasing in infancy

    Author : Martyna A. Galazka; Pär Nyström; Gustaf Gredebäck; Moritz Daum; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; social causality; motion; animacy perception; chasing goal-directed motion; heat-seeking; EEG; P400; Nc; spatial proximity; non-contact causality; functional specialization; specialized perception; evolution; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Since the seminal work of Fritz Heider and Marienne Simmel (1944) the study of animacy perception, or the perception and attribution of life from the motion of simple geometrical shapes has intrigued researchers. The intrigue for psychologists and vision scientists then and today centered on the stark disconnect between the simplicity of the visual input and the universal richness of the resulting percept.

  5. 5. Infants in Control : Prospective Motor Control and Executive Functions in Action Development

    Author : Janna Gottwald; Gustaf Gredebäck; Claes von Hofsten; Daniela Corbetta; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : infant development; action development; prospective motor control; executive functions; action planning; motor development; motion tracking; embodied cognition; developmental psychology; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : This thesis assesses the link between action and cognition early in development. Thus the notion of an embodied cognition is investigated by tying together two levels of action control in the context of reaching in infancy: prospective motor control and executive functions. READ MORE
