Action Production and Event Perception as Routine Sequential Behaviors.

Summary of "Action Production and Event Perception as Routine Sequential Behaviors."

It is argued that event perception and routine sequential action production share a range of characteristics (e.g., similar levels of automaticity, the involvement of sequentially and hierarchically organized schemata, and the coupled operation of predictive and monitoring processes). With this in mind, and in an effort to develop a mechanistic account of event perception, we consider how an existing model of routine sequential action production might be applied in the domain of event perception. We focus the discussion on the multiple roles of prediction in the two domains, and we consider the implications of the application of the model of action production to event perception and for sequential processing more generally.

Event Perception and Memory.

Events make up much of our lived experience, and the perceptual mechanisms that represent events in experience have pervasive effects on action control, language use, and remembering. Event representa...

Action's influence on spatial perception: resolution and a mystery.

Despite the impression that perception of spatial layout including distance, slant, and size is objective and geometrically accurate, spatial perception is influenced by a perceiver's ability to act. ...

The influence of perceptual-motor variability on the perception of action boundaries for reaching.

Successful interactions within the environment are contingent upon the perceiver's ability to perceive the maximum extent over which they can perform actions, commonly referred to as action boundaries...

A Network of Topographic Maps in Human Association Cortex Hierarchically Transforms Visual Timing-Selective Responses.

Accurately timing sub-second sensory events is crucial when perceiving our dynamic world. This ability allows complex human behaviors that require timing-dependent multisensory integration and action ...

Roles for Event Representations in Sensorimotor Experience, Memory Formation, and Language Processing.

The unifying theme for the papers in this volume is that event-predictive representations play an important role in cognitive processes, and they are a particularly fruitful object of study for cogni...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The perceiving of attributes, characteristics, and behaviors of one's associates or social groups.

The application of methods designed to reduce the risk of harm associated with certain behaviors without reduction in frequency of those behaviors. The risk-associated behaviors include ongoing and active addictive behaviors.

A late-appearing component of the event-related potential. P300 stands for a positive deflection in the event-related voltage potential at 300 millisecond poststimulus. Its amplitude increases with unpredictable, unlikely, or highly significant stimuli and thereby constitutes an index of mental activity. (From Campbell, Psychiatric Dictionary, 6th ed)

Perception of three-dimensionality.

Diagnostic procedures, such as laboratory tests and x-rays, routinely performed on all individuals or specified categories of individuals in a specified situation, e.g., patients being admitted to the hospital. These include routine tests administered to neonates.
