Behavioral Organization and Perceptual Coding in Prehensile and Postural Development

  • Daniel H. Ashmead
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASID, volume 56)

Abstract

This discussion focuses on two issues, the implications of postulating certain units of behavioral organization, and the relevance of body-scaled perceptual information. Examples are drawn principally from investigations of the interaction between prehensile and postural control reported at this conference.
