Reaching and grasping familiar objects: The impact of recent training
MetadataShow full item record
In the recent years a plethora of studies attempted to investigate the apparent dissociation between two anatomically and behaviourally observed visual systems: the dorsal and the ventral stream of visual processes. An appropriate method that demonstrates behavioural dissociations in the healthy population are visual illusions of size. Under the effect of these illusions, besides perceptual misjudgments of distance, reaching and grasping is also affected, mostly under monocular vision. Investigating a ventral stream specific visual cue, namely familiar size, we used size illusions with familiar objects to explore the impact of recent training on reaching and grasping behaviour under binocular vision.
