Perception in intentional action: time, space, and force

by · Nov 20, 2015 · 655 views ·

Embodied cognitive science recognizes that our perception is greatly influenced by our action. Work on causality and sense of agency show that in visual domains of time, space, and force (amplitude) are perceived differently depending on whether or not we can intentionally act upon world. In this talk I first introduce three perceptual effects which illustrate it: intentional temporal binding, spatial binding, and sensory attenuation, respectively. Then I present how these effects are used in research on sense of agency. Finally, I focus on experimental work on temporal binding effect in sense of agency and the importance of action’s contextual cues.
