We perceive animacy even on a simple dot traveling across a screen based on its movements. Research studies have pointed out several features of movement that are assumed to induce the perception of animacy; however, validations and discussions about these features are still insufficient. Meanwhile, other studies indicate that the perception of the intentionality is a prerequisite for the perception of animacy but these perceptions have not been differentiated clearly in the literature. In this… CONTINUE READING
