Projects

Action Perception: Psychological and Neural Frameworks
 
We will be using action data recorded with motion capture technology to explore which dimensions humans use whilst they perceive another person's actions. From this we aim to create a multidimensional model of action perception with a morphable set of photorealistic stimuli that can be manipulated along these dimensions and used in further action perception research.
