Gauging possibilities for action based on friction underfoot.
(J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform, 2007-10)
Standing and walking generate information about friction underfoot. Five experiments examined whether walkers use such perceptual information for prospective control of locomotion. In particular, do walkers integrate information ...
Effects of priming duration on retention over the first 1 1/2 years of life.
(Dev Psychobiol, 2005-07)
Exposing individuals to an isolated component (a prime) of a prior event alleviates its forgetting. Two experiments with 120 human infants between 3 and 18 months of age determined the minimum duration of a prime that can ...
Why walkers slip: shine is not a reliable cue for slippery ground.
(Percept Psychophys, 2006-04)
In a series of four studies, we investigated the visual cues that walkers use to predict slippery ground surfaces and tested whether visual information is reliable for specifying low-friction conditions. In Study 1, 91% ...
One sound or two? Object-related negativity indexes echo perception.
(Percept Psychophys, 2008-11)
The ability to isolate a single sound source among concurrent sources and reverberant energy is necessary for understanding the auditory world. The precedence effect describes a related experimental finding, that when presented ...
Learning from falling.
(Child Dev, 2006-01)
Walkers fall frequently, especially during infancy. Children (15-, 21-, 27-, 33-, and 39-month-olds) and adults were tested in a novel foam pit paradigm to examine age-related changes in the relationship between falling ...
