  5. 5. “Perceiving is an achievement of the individual, not an appearance in the theater of his consciousness. It is a keeping-in- touch with the world, an experiencing of things, rather than a having of experiences” -Gibson (1979) (Goldstein,2014,p. 170)
  6. 6. Ecological Approach to Perception Movement ▪ Optic flow ▪ Gradient flow ▪ Focus of expansion (FOE) Information ▪ Invariant information ▪ Self-produced information
  7. 7. Affordance Perception of an object Physical properties of an object What the object can be used for www.macs-eu.org
  8. 8. Action Depends on Perception Perception Depends on Action
  9. 9. Conclusion ▪ Spatial organization is translated into the brain through neurons ▪ Each neuron has its own scene feature which it carries to the corresponding region of the brain ▪ J.J.Gibson was an integral part of visual perception in the psychological world. ▪ Gibson believed in sensation is perception.We can gather enough information from the environment to keep moving forward ▪ Affordance gives an object purpose past its physical properties ▪ Action can be driven by perception as much as perception can be driven by an action
