Selective attention and the processing of observed actions (2008–2010)
Our ability to understand the hand and face gestures of others is a crucial part of social interaction. Deficits in teh ability to perceive others' actions are assocaited with clicnial disorders such as autism and apraxia. We will examine how specific regions of the brain operate to process and recognise actions that we observe. This is a crucial first-step toward understanding and redifining clinical disorders such as apraxia that involve deficits in the perception of actions and gestures.
