Prospective Perception


In recent years, more and more data have come to fore that indicate perception to be inherently prospective (i.e., anticipatory). The purpose of the present symposium is to examine the research of three scholars who investigate prospective perception from three different theoretical perspectives: the Theory of Event Coding, the Action-Specific Perception account, and Ecological theory. Panelists will examine differences between theories and address the extent to which prospective perception affords a means of potentially integrating these theories.
