AbstractThe hypothesis that perception enslaves action is examined by assessing whether systematic distortions in perceptual judgments are reflected by inaccuracies in catching. In the first experiment, participants had to align manually the orientation of a reference bar placed at different distances in the frontoparallel plane. In the second experiment participants had to catch differently orientated moving bars, which became invisible at different distances from the interception point. In the matching experiment, systematic errors in the alignment of orientation were found in particular for oblique orientations, the magnitude of which increased with increasing distance of the reference bar. The inaccuracies in the final hand orientation during the catching task, however, did not mirror this pattern of deviations. The findings are interpreted to be more consistent with recent views that vision for perception (i.e., matching) and vision for action (i.e., catching) are dissociated than with the view that perception enslaves action.
