CENTER for the ECOLOGICAL STUDY of PERCEPTION and ACTION

CESPA provides an organizational structure that allows unparalleled integration of research across specialties, with extensive collaboration among faculty and students. With 10 Faculty and many associated Fellows (including specialists in optics, acoustics, haptics, movement, physical therapy, nonlinear dynamics, development, social psychology, ethology, and language), the program provides a breadth of training in ecological psychology that is unmatched anywhere. Students in Ecological Psychology at the University of Connecticut will confront conceptual and methodological topics that are at the cutting edge of cognitive science in a program that has long led the way in the development of many of those same topics. Applicants who would like to tour the facilities and talk to students and faculty are encouraged to arrange a visit.

Recent Events

On August 21-22, CESPA hosted its ninth workshop on Cognition and Dynamics named in honor of Guy van Orden. Notable faculty from UConn, Cincinnati, Holy Cross, UC Merced, Harvard Medical Center, and elsewhere contributed to a high-level set of talks and, of course, a successful pub night. The full schedule may be found at this link .

What is ecological psychology?

The ecological approach to perception and action, in the tradition of the late James J. Gibson, sees psychology as continuous with the natural sciences. Just as the behaviors of natural, nonliving systems at the very large and very small scales are approachable in terms of very general principles so, too, are the behaviors of living systems at the intermediate ecological scale, the scale at which animals and their environments are defined.

Where the more orthodox strategy in cognitive science is to appeal to special mental processes to impose order and regularity on perception and action, the ecological approach seeks to expose the laws that underlie these capabilities. Proponents do not aim to reduce the phenomena of perception and action to known physical phenomena but to share with the natural sciences the law-based strategy of explanation. The task of identifying general principles at the ecological scale poses new and exciting challenges to be met by the development of novel tactics within an inter-disciplinary framework. The program in Ecological Psychology at the University of Connecticut exploits such a framework.

For over 30 years, students of ecological psychology at the University of Connecticut have received training from leading proponents of the approach. These have included Claudia Carello, Carol Fowler, Claire Michaels, Robert Shaw, and Michael Turvey. All are now Emeritus in name but not in deed. Graduates of the program are now themselves at the vanguard of ecological science at major universities such as Arizona State, Brown, California-Riverside, Cincinnati, Clemson, Illinois State, Indiana, Ohio State, and Northeastern as well as at independent research facilities such as Haskins Laboratories, Hughes Research Laboratories, the National Defense Institute, and the Wyss Institute.

One third of the Consulting Editors for the journal Ecological Psychology are graduates of the program at the University of Connecticut as are a number of the Consulting Editors of the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance. The semiannual International Conference on Perception and Action started here in 1981 and has since been hosted at several other sites within the U.S. as well as in Sweden, Italy, Holland, France, Scotland, Canada, Australia, Japan, Brazil and Portugal.

 

What kind of research do we do?

All CESPA laboratories are concerned with the theme of perceiving and acting. This integrated structure promotes an active atmosphere and allows students to move easily among experimental methods and faculty advisors. In addition to ecological faculty on UConn's Storrs campus (James Dixon, Till Frank, Bruce Kay, and Tehran Davis in Psychology; Deb Bubela and Jeffrey Kinsella-Shaw in Physical Therapy) and Hartford campus (Kerry Marsh), and an active core of emeritus professors (Claudia Carello, Carol Fowler, Claire Michaels, Robert Shaw, and M. T. Turvey), collaborative research can also be undertaken with CESPA Fellows (Peter Beek, Paula Fitzpatrick, Bert Hodges, Ken Holt, Dilip Kondepudi, William Mace, and Richard C. Schmidt), regular visitors whose primary affiliation is with other universities.

The Center is housed in 4600 square feet in the Bousfield Psychology Building. The computer environment of Macintosh and Pentium machines, connected via local area networks, is upgraded regularly. (The University's mainframe is accessed by ethernet and wireless from every CESPA computer and the Psychology Department has a computer systems manager with two full-time assistants to address software, hardware, and network problems.) Force platforms, electrogoniometers, electromagnetic and infrared movement registration devices, and a computerized treadmill collect data from posture, bimanual coordination, walking, and exploratory behaviors. Customized software includes spectral, correlational, dimensionality, and stability analyses, trial by trial information about parameters such as periods of oscillation, amplitudes, and kinetic energy.

Vision & Action

As an animal moves relative to objects in the environment, changes in the patterning of reflected light from surfaces are potentially informative about such characteristics as surface composition, extent and slant, about the presence of obstacles or openings, the direction and velocity of relative movement, time to contact with surfaces and the severity of the impending contact. Similarly, attention is given to the visual guidance of interception: For example, we ask what optical patterns guide body and hand movements in catching. A major focus of our work is on the mathematics and physics of light at the ecological scale as a way to capture the information about such surface and locomotor transformations. Experiments involving dynamic computer displays allow the testing of the usefulness of candidate descriptions for guiding activity as well as the implications of such descriptions for understanding how optical information is detected by the visual perceptual system.

The optical patterns available to a moving or stationary perceiver-actor specify a variety of important properties of the environment, including the opportunities the environment offers for action. In the optical flow laboratory, we ask how significant aspects of the environment are specified by optical patterns and whether perceiver-actors exploit these patterns in perceiving and acting. Our concern has historically been with navigation: by what optical patterns do we guide our locomotion (steer, stop) through the environment. More recently we have sought to uncover principles of information-action coupling in interceptive tasks. Among the tasks we study are how outfielders run appropriately so as to catch fly balls, how one guides a reach to the side to intercept a ball with one hand, and how one times a volleyball smash.

Dynamic Touch

Transporting objects and manipulating tools requires that properties such as size, shape, and orientation be perceived so that activity can be guided effectively. If vision is absent or simply directed elsewhere, are environmental properties revealed in the tissue deformations that accompany wielding with the hand or exploring with a hand-held object such as a cane?

Here is the problem: Muscular forces and object motions vary over time but the properties do not. Our work focuses on time-invariant quantities--moments of the mass distribution--that have been shown to underlie haptic perception of a variety of functional properties of objects, properties that reflect how an object can be moved and controlled. Experiments involving manipulations of the mass distribution examine spatial capabilties of dynamic touch and allow comparisons to the informational support for vision and hearing.

Intentional Dynamics

Behavior that is oriented with respect to some goal is said to be intentional. In order for an intention to be fulfilled by a system, whether an individual or a social unit, it must serve as a global constraint on the local actions of that system (e.g., the location of a target constrains how the act of throwing is assembled; the desired facial profile constrains orthodontic treatment planning). Intentional behavior requires prospective, anticipatory control. How can the current dynamics of a system, the forces it must produce, the energy it must use, the number of participants engaged in an act Ñ be constrained by a goal that lies in the future, perhaps years away? What kinds of systems can be considered intentional? Experiments assess the consequences for behavior of manipulating intentions (e.g., navigate a wheel chair through clutter carefully or quickly)

Coordination Dynamics

Particular time-varying patternings of the limbs characterize activities such as running, juggling, and baseball batting. These movement patterns comprise many degrees of freedom at the neural and muscular level organized as a functional unit. What general principles are at work in their assembly, and what quantities capture their dynamical, macroscopic nature? Movement patterns change to meet task demands, for example, reflecting the type of terrain (steep, slippery) or the intent of the actor (staying in the middle of the path).. Are these chang es principled? Given that information guides the assembling of movement patterns, and the execution of acts, how is this information made available in dynamically relevant and task-specific ways, and how is it used? Experiments typically employ rhythmic behaviors to assess the consequences for coordination of varying aspects of the underlying dynamic.

Social & Interpersonal Coordination

The environment that constrains our behavior includes not only objects and events but also other members of our species. When we dance or talk or work together to accomplish a goal, our behaviors are guided by information about others within our social niche. Research in this laboratory strives to apply ecological psychology's law-based perspective--in particular, exploiting methods from dynamical systems and affordance research--to study how we perceive and act with others. Experiments examine transitions from individual to social behavior, including possible influences on the degree of synchrony between two people who may or may not intend to coordinate.

Other Research

Investigations of topics such as ecological acoustics, affordances, picture perception, perceptual learning, the dynamics of development, cognitive influences on coordination, posture, ecological human factors, and so on, typically emerge from one or more of the focal laboratories, thereby exploiting the richness of their characteristic observables and analytic tools. Students interested in the ecological approach to language (Fowler) can pursue their studies within either Ecological Psychology or in the Experimental Division's Program in Language and Cognition. Students interested in the ecological approach to development (Dixon) can pursue their studies within either Ecological Psychology or in the Developmental Psychology Program.

    The Guy Van Orden UConn Workshop on Cognition & Dynamics


    The idea for the UConn Workshop on Cognition and Dynamics arose in 2005 during a classic Guy Van Orden and Michael Turvey discussion of cognitive science--its methods, tools, biases, and future. The model for the workshop was implemented the next summer: A limited number of talks and attendees, a civilized schedule, and ample opportunity for social-intellectual interactions. Invited scholars share an interest in dynamics that, whether ecologically or computationally oriented, encourages re-conceptualizing standard experimental findings, devising unconventional experimental methods, developing new analytic procedures, and reappraising foundational notions. With Guy's passing in 2012, the GVO/UConn Workshop on Cognition & Dynamics is now in his honor.
