Sage Publishes Book Chapter
Kara Sage, visiting assistant professor of psychology, co-authored a chapter titled "Dwelling on Action" in the new book Social Perception: Detection and Interpretation of Animacy, Agency, and Intention (ed. M.D. Rutherford and Valerie Kuhlmeier).
Sage's chapter highlights what psychologists know about humans' interpretation of action and how they break down streams of information into meaningful units. While paying special attention to infancy and childhood, the chapter also highlights a potential new method for exploring action segmentation across the lifespan. As per the publisher's description, "top researchers in fields ranging from developmental psychology to vision science consider the perception of biological and animate motion, inferences based on this motion, and the early development of these abilities" in this new book.
