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

    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.

  3. 3. The perception of actions and interactions And the importance of context

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

  4. 4. Mind in Action : Action Representation and the Perception of Biological Motion

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Keywords : action; perception; concept; Cognition; categorization; embodiment; prototype; biological motion; semantics; language; configural processing; basic level; graded structure; typicality; SOCIAL SCIENCES Other social sciences Civics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Övrig samhällsvetenskap Samhällsvetenskap; Humanities and Social sciences; Humaniora-samhällsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The ability to understand and communicate about the actions of others is a fundamental aspect of our daily activity. How can we talk about what others are doing? What qualities do different actions have such that they cause us to see them as being different or similar? What is the connection between what we see and the development of concepts and words or expressions for the things that we see? To what extent can two different people see and talk about the same things? Is there a common basis for our perception, and is there then a common basis for the concepts we form and the way in which the concepts become lexicalized in language? The broad purpose of this thesis is to relate aspects of perception, categorization and language to action recognition and conceptualization. READ MORE
