Please join Dr. Michael Masson from the University of Victoria on Wednesday, 6th December from 3pm-4:30pm in DT 2203 for the following talk:

Title: Compelling Actions

Abstract:

Evidence regarding the influence of intentions on the contribution of action representations to language comprehension and object perception is presented. This work creates significant challenges to the view that comprehension is based on mental simulation of described actions and the proposal that perceiving manipulable objects automatically evokes affordances offered by those objects.

We hope to see you there!
