A large share of research in movement science is directed towards understanding the mutual interdependence of perception and action. This thematic session will outline current theoretical, methodological and modeling advances within this area.
To this end, first, the theoretical framework of internal models will be presented and its functional role in compensating for sensorimotor delays and disambiguating sensory information will be outlined. Empirical evidence for the use of minimal 3D models will be presented and the utility of these models for controlling catching behavior from a multisensory point of view will be discussed (López-Moliner, 2016).
Second, the development of a new, miniaturized eye tracking system will be presented. In combination with highly automated analysis procedures this allows to analyze “perception and action”-variables in a less restrictive and more ubiquitous way in the lab and in situ, substantiated by example studies using this technology (Kredel, 2016).
By measuring gaze and motor behavior while experimentally manipulating task constraints or goals and by using techniques developed in machine learning it is possible to gain an understanding of intrinsic decision and control processes. After an introduction to this methodology, empirically grounded implications of cost functions for visuomotor control will be presented (Rothkopf, 2016).
