Computational models are fundamentally important for testing the feasibility of theories of the visual processing of body movements and for deriving well-defined theoretical predictions that can be tested experimentally. A computational model is proposed for the recognition of transitive and nontransitive hand actions from real videos that reproduces several key neurophysiological properties of the action perception system. Limitations of the proposed model, along with novel predictions and areas for future research, are discussed.

Keywords:   computational models, computer vision, transitive actions, nontransitive actions, goal-directed actions, motion processing, form processing, templates, mirror neuron system, dynamic controller architectures, superior temporal sulcus (sts), temporal order view invariance, position invariance
