Perception of Human Motion

Randolph Blake, Maggie Shiffrar
2007 Annual Review of Psychology  
Humans, being highly social creatures, rely heavily on the ability to perceive what others are doing and to infer from gestures and expressions what others may be intending to do. These perceptual skills are easily mastered by most, but not all, people, in large part because human action readily communicates intentions and feelings.
