Within the context of the Ebbinghaus illusion, adults regularly misjudge the physical size of a centre disc, yet scale their hand aperture according to its actual size. Separate visual pathways for perception and action are assumed to account for this finding. The dorsal visual stream is said to elaborate on egocentric (visuomotor), while the ventral stream is involved in allocentric transformations (object recognition). This study examines the ontogenetic development of this dissociation… CONTINUE READING
