SP Sermin Ildirar and Tim J. Smith. Action Prediction Across Match-on-Action Cuts in Infancy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Adults (Flanagan & Johnson, 2003), as well as 12-month-old babies (but not 6-month-olds; Falck-Ytter, Gredebaek & Hofsten, 2006) perform goal-directed, anticipatory eye movements when observing actions performed by others. The study we will present at the conference aims to find out what happens when the observed action is distributed across film cuts. The anticipatory eye movements of both infants (n:20) and adults (n:20) will be measured during watching stimulus depicting actions performed by human agents or when the objects move themselves both in the single long and multiple close-up shots.
