It isn't the most tedious book I've ever read, but it's certainly a pedantic one/5(48). To be adaptive, it must be guided by information about the environment, and hence the visual control of locomotion is a similarly fundamental perceptual ability.

Locomotion (and self-motion in general) thus provides a model system for understanding basic principles of perception and the control of action.

Rose, in Advances in Psychology, Visual perception of self is not, however, limited to recognition.

My library. Motion perception is the process of inferring the speed and direction of elements in a scene based on visual, vestibular and proprioceptive inputs. Although this process appears straightforward to most observers, it has proven to be a difficult problem from a computational perspective, and difficult to explain in terms of neural processing.

Motion perception is studied by many disciplines, including psychology. Start studying The Psychology of Vision- Gray Chapter 8.

Gestalt psychology, school of psychology founded in the 20th century that provided the foundation for the modern study of perception. Gestalt theory emphasizes that the whole of anything is greater than its parts.

That is, the attributes of the whole are not deducible from analysis of the parts in isolation. The word Gestalt is used in modern German to mean the way a thing has been “placed.

Motion perception is the process of inferring the speed and direction of objects that move in a visual scene given some visual input. While this process appears straighforward to most observers.

James Jerome Gibson. American psychologist known for his work on visual perception. James Jerome Gibson proposed a theory of vision that was a first of its kind; he suggested that visual perception was the direct detection of environmental invariances, and that visual perception did not require inference or information processing.
