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 ...
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 ...
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% ...
