Indexing and the object concept: developing `what' and `where' systems
The study of object cognition over the past 25 years has proceeded in two largely non-interacting camps. One camp has studied object-based visual attention in adults, while the other has studied theExpand

The psychophysics of chasing: A case study in the perception of animacy
Psychologists have long been captivated by the perception of animacy - the fact that even simple moving shapes may appear to engage in animate, intentional, and goal-directed movements. Here weExpand
