1

what tasks are seemingly easy for humans that are difficult for robots?

reaching, grasping, manipulating objects

2

what tasks are seemingly hard for humans that are easy for robots?

playing chess, solving logic puzzles

3

how are computers good at hard tasks?

use inference, pick best pathway from list of different objects, basic strategy

4

basic sensorimotor skills are hard to do with AI but its easy to make computers exhibit adult level performance on intelligence tests/playing chess. what paradox is this?

Moravec's paradox

5

what senses are needed to light a match?

vision and touch

6

what 2 senses provide multi sensory integration?

vision and touch

7

for what type of tasks do we need to integrate information across different senses?

motor tasks

8

reference frame from vision =-

eye centred, retinal

9

reference frame for audition =

head centred, location of sound source with respect to ears

10

reference frame for touch =

body centred, location of tactile stimulus on skin

11

we need to convert between _______ ______ and to _____ ______

reference frames, external space

12

to get from an eye centred reference frame to a head reference frame what do you need to know?

the relative angle between the 2 frames > causes a shift in reference frame

13

eye > head = need to know orientation of?

eyes

14

head > body = need to know orientation of?

head

15

what required knowledge is needed to convert between reference frames?

relative position and orientation of body parts

16

relative position of body parts is called what?

body schema

17

what are the features of the body schema?

spatial coded, modular, updated with movement, adaptable, coherent, interpersonal

18

what happens every time we move?

our body schema is updated instantly

19

position of each body part in external space =

spatial coded

20

how do we know that the body schema is modular (different body parts processed in different brain regions)?

there are selective impairments for different body schemas

21

how is the body schema adaptable?

it changes when the body changes > with age, changes get incorporated into the body schema over time

22

how is the body schema coherent?

resolves perceptual conflicts between different senses > spatial continuity

23

observed actions are represented within the same body schema =

interpersonal

24

what are the 3 types of body representation?

body schema, body image, body semantics

25

sensorimotor representation that guides action =

body schema

26

i can feel that i have a body =

body percept

27

awareness of what the body looks like/is made up of =

body concept

28

names for the different body parts =

body sematics

29

what type of task did Heed & Azanon (2014) conduct to see if body posture affects perception?

temporal order judgement task

30

what were the findings from Heed & Azanon's study?

ppts did worse when arms crossed as body schema interfered, they mixed up which hand was stimulated when arms crossed
