The human body has long been a rich source of inspiration for the arts, and artists have long recognized the body's special status. While the scientific study of body perception also has an important history, recent technological advances have triggered an explosion of research on the visual perception of the human body in motion, or as it is traditionally called, biological motion by: 4.

Biological motion is integral to social perception. The superior temporal sulcus (STS) region, particularly the posterior STS, has been implicated in the perception of biological motion including eye, hand, and whole-body movements (e.g., Bonda et al., ; Pelphrey et al., ).

Specifically, it exhibits differences in activation to actions. Biological motion is motion that comes from actions of a biological organism.

Humans and animals are able to understand those actions through experience, identification, and higher level neural processing. Humans use biological motion to Biological Motion book and understand familiar actions, which is involved in the neural processes for empathy, communication, and understanding other's intentions.

InGunnar Johansson launched the systematic study of the perception of the human body in motion. Merging his applied interests in traffic safety and his theoretical interests in vector analysis and decomposition, Johansson produced captivating displays of people dancing and doing other ordinary activities, but with the people represented only by lights on their joints.

His book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an "Excellence Award" from the Society for Technical Communication; two subsequent books: Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and The Fourth Phase of Water, both won that Society's "Distinguished Award.".

Point-light displays: Biological motion is often represented solely by a set of small point-light dots or markers attached to the major joints of an actor’s body1.

Within these point-light displays, the individual dots merely undergo translational and/or elliptical motions and only the global integration of these motion signals evokes the perception of biological motion.

The book provides a comprehensive overview not just about the perception of biological motion (whatever that is), but also about other aspects of social visual perception. A very interesting read that contains contributions from a considerable number of acclaimed experts in the field.

The study of biological motion perception was introduced into vision research some forty years ago by Swedish psychologist Gunnar Johansson. Since that time, questions and approaches surrounding this topic have changed considerably.

While early work on biological motion perception was primarily concerned with the mechanisms of perceptual organization the more recent research emphasizes the. Biological motion perception is the act of perceiving the fluid unique motion of a biological agent. The phenomenon was first documented by Swedish perceptual psychologist, Gunnar Johansson, in There are many brain areas involved in this process, some similar to those used to perceive humans complete this process with ease, from a computational neuroscience perspective there.

The motion arising from the movement of living things. Although the term is consistent with viewing an action in natural conditions with full lighting, it is commonly used in the field of visual perception to denote motion patterns arising from viewing conditions with reduced visual information such as just the motion of specific points on the body or the silhouette.

Biological motion perception has been extensively researched in humans, the results of which demonstrate that people are able to extract a wealth of information from point-light displays. Biological motion stimuli represent the essence of locomotor behavior and activate two major brain systems.

One system is active in mentalizing, where an individual ascribes goals and mental. Perception of Biological Motion.

One very compelling example of the visual system's ability to recover object information from sparse input is the phenomenon known as biological the activity and identity of an animate creature are compellingly created using just a dozen or so "light points" strategically placed on the individual's body (Johansson ).

All books are in clear copy here, and all files are secure so don't worry about it. Thus, "biological motion" perception likely defines the perceptual category of human and animal motions organized such that human motion, or, more specifically, the observer's own motor repertoire.

c) sensitivity to global motion matures at about years of age d) sensitivity to visual motion is fully developed at birth e) sensitivity to motion-defined form and. Newborn infants have a special affinity for motion. It is not surprising, therefore, that the perception of biological motion has an important role in the early development of infants.

This chapter describes the development of biological motion perception across early development. The chapter provides a critical discussion about whether “limitations” in infants’ visual system may reflect.
