This chapter focuses on the visual perception of whole body actions. Section 2 describes differences between the perceptual and neurophysiological analyses of moving people and moving objects. Section 3 describes some of the social and emotion information that observers can detect from highly degraded displays of human motion. Section 4 focuses on an argument that classically trained vision scientists may find disagreeable. That is, classic models of the visual system are largely modular in that visual perception depends exclusively upon visual processes. Section 5 describes investigations of the relationships between observers' social capabilities and their visual sensitivity to other people's actions.

Keywords:   visual perception, visual analysis, human movement, movement perception, human motion
