Sensory and motor contributions to reducing uncertainty in interceptive timing

invité par Laurent Madelain & Anna Montagnini


I will talk on how people cope with different sorts of uncertainty in interceptive timing tasks. The problem of uncertainty, be due to ambiguity or internal noise, has gone unnoticed in the dominant approaches that try to explain how people estimate time to contact. I will present both published and ongoing experiments that shows how humans deal with uncertainty in tasks that require minimizing a timing error. Not only can people flexibly switch between different sensory information to reduce the timing error but also they can modulate the contribution of the motor action to reduce temporal uncertainty.
