Visual motion aftereffect from understanding motion language

A. T. Dils, L. Boroditsky
2010 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Further, the results reveal an intriguing link between the vividness of mental imagery and the nature of the processes and representations involved in language understanding.  ...  The explanation frequently offered is that the representations generated during the course of language comprehension share processing resources with perception, recruiting some of the very same brain regions  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Jonathan Winawer and members of Cognation for their helpful feedback. This work was supported by NSF Grant No. 0608514 to Lera Boroditsky.  ...

People can understand descriptions of motion without activating visual motion brain regions

Swethasri Dravida, Rebecca Saxe, Marina Bedny
2013 Frontiers in Psychology  
In sum, there is little evidence that MT/MST neural representations of visual motion are evoked automatically during comprehension of action verbs.  ...  In the current study, we examine possible links between language and perception by comparing the neural mechanisms underlying comprehension of language describing motion and actual visual perception of  ...  Conflict of Interest Statement: The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest  ...

The Importance of the Affective Component of Movement in Action Understanding [chapter]

Giuseppe Di Cesare
2020 Modelling Human Motion  
Section 6.2 provides evidence that the dorso-central insula plays a central role in the perception and expression of action vitality forms.  ...  Section 6.3 demonstrates that the same insular sector is also involved in the perception of words conveying gentle and rude vitality forms.  ...  The observed action could be performed with a gentle or rude vitality form and the task request was to pay attention on the action vitality form.  ...

Catherine Manning, Kimberly Meier, Deborah Giaschi
2022 Journal of Illusion  
However, more work is required to understand the individual differences relating to this percept.  ...  Across two independent developmental labs, we have been puzzled by the observation that a small proportion of our child and adult participants consistently report perceiving motion in the direction opposite  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Oliver Braddick and Janette Atkinson for useful discussions and Twitter users who shared their experiences regarding reverse motion perception with us.  ...

Understanding dynamic scenes

A. Chella, M. Frixione, S. Gaglio
2000 Artificial Intelligence  
We propose a framework for the representation of visual knowledge in a robotic agent, with special attention to the understanding of dynamic scenes.  ...  Our assumption is that a link is missing between the two classes of representations mentioned above.  ...  We wish also to thank Luigia Carlucci Aiello for her suggestions that greatly improved the paper.  ...

Top-Down and Bottom-Up Contributions to Understanding Sentences Describing Objects in Motion

Shirley-Ann Rueschemeyer, Arthur M. Glenberg, Michael P. Kaschak, Karsten Mueller, Angela D. Friederici
2010 Frontiers in Psychology  
Theories of embodied language comprehension propose that the neural systems used for perception, action, and emotion are also engaged during language comprehension.  ...  Consistent with these theories, behavioral studies have shown that the comprehension of language that describes motion is affected by simultaneously perceiving a moving stimulus (Kaschak et al., 2005).  ...  Behavioral evidence has been reported supporting a link between neural systems involved in perception of visual motion and comprehension of language describing objects in motion.  ...

Hand in Motion Reveals Mind in Motion

Jonathan B. Freeman, Rick Dale, Thomas A. Farmer
2011 Frontiers in Psychology  
The link beTween manual and menTal dynamics Classically, motor responses were seen as the end-result of a one-way route from perception → cognition → action; thus, they were thought to reveal little about  ...  Further, human reaching movements suggest that multiple motor plans are prepared in parallel, and that these cascade over time into visually guided action Nakayama, 2006, 2008).  ...  representations, and that these dynamically evolve over time into stable categorical perceptions (Freeman and Ambady, 2011b) .  ...

Disorganizing biological motion

A. R. Hunt, F. Halper
2008 Journal of Vision  
The rapid and seemingly effortless organization of visually impoverished point-light displays of humans walking is often held up as a compelling example of the perception of form from motion.  ...  We conclude that the spontaneous perception of a human walking is not an inevitable consequence of the motion of the points in a point-light walker but depends on the points themselves being relatively  ...  This result suggests that attention had to be directed to each walker before a decision was made, consistent with evidence from visual search experiments demonstrating that focal attention is needed to  ...

Action understanding and active inference

Karl Friston, Jérémie Mattout, James Kilner
2011 Biological cybernetics  
To substantiate this claim, we present neuronal simulations that show the same representations can prescribe motor behavior and encode motor intentions during action-observation.  ...  We have suggested that the mirror-neuron system might be usefully understood as implementing Bayes-optimal perception of actions emitted by oneself or others.  ...  We would like to thank Marcia Bennett for helping prepare this manuscript and our colleagues for very useful discussions, particularly Stefan Kiebel and Jun Tani.  ...
