  1. 1. Predictive Eye Movements During Action Observation in Infancy : Understanding the Processes Behind Action Prediction

    Author : Dorota Green; Gustaf Gredebäck; Claes von Hofsten; Bennet I. Bertenthal; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Action prediction; action understanding; eye movements; eye-tracking; culture; infnacy; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Being able to predict the goal of other people’s actions is an important aspect of our daily lives. This ability allows us to interact timely with others and adjust our behaviour appropriately.The general aim of the present thesis was to explore which processes best explain our ability to predict other people’s action goals during development.

  2. 2. Effect of timing training in golf and soccer players : skill, movement organization, and brain activity

    Author : Marius Sommer; Louise Rönnqvist; Charlotte Häger; Nicola Hodges; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Motor timing; rhythmicity; timing training; golf shot; golf swing; kinematics; precision; variability; coordination; movement dynamics; soccer; fMRI; mirror neurons; action observation; cerebellum; perception - action.; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Background Although trainers and athletes consider ‘good timing skills’ to be critical for optimal sport performance, little is known in regard to how sport-specific skills may benefit from timing training. Thus, assuming that all motor performances are mediated by an internal timing mechanism, enhanced motor timing is expected to have positive effects on both planning and execution of movement performance, and consequently on complex sports actions as golf or soccer.

  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. Action Recognition for Robot Learning

    Author : Alessandro Pieropan; Kjellström Hedvig; Markus Vinkze; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : This thesis builds on the observation that robots cannot be programmed to handle any possible situation in the world. Like humans, they need mechanisms to deal with previously unseen situations and unknown objects. One of the skills humans rely on to deal with the unknown is the ability to learn by observing others.

  5. 5. Teamwork in the operating room - The role of organizational design and implications for patient safety

    Author : Christofer Rydenfält; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Interprofessional work; Leadership; Observation; Operating room; Organizational design; Patient safety; Teamwork;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is teamwork in healthcare. Healthcare is often described as complex. This description is more appropriate now than ever with the extensive specialization that has taken place in recent decades resulting in increasingly specialized physicians and nurses. READ MORE
