  • Introduction. Making great strides : advances in research on the perception of the human body ; Gunnar Johansson, events, and biological motion
  • Psychophysics. Top-down versus bottom-up processing of biological motion ; Seeing you through me : creating self-other correspondences for body perception ; What does "biological motion" really mean? : differentiating visual percepts of human, animal, and non-biological motions ; Shape-independent processing of biological motion ; Action perception from a common coding perspective
  • Development and individual differences. Developmental origins of biological motion perception ; Experience and the perception of biological motion ; Variability in the visual perception of human motion as a function of the observer's autistic traits ; Development of body motion processing in normalcy and pathology
  • Social perspectives. Person (mis)perception? on the biased representation of the human body ; It's the way you walk: kinematic specification of vulnerability to attack ; Coordinating social beings in motion ; Functionalism redux : how adaptive action constrains perception, simulation, and evolved intuitions
  • Neurophysiology. Neural mechanisms for action observation ; Neural mechanisms for biological motion and animacy ; The how, when, and why of configural processing in the perception of human movement ; Brain mechanisms for social perception : moving towards an understanding of autism ; From body perception to action preparation : a distributed neural system for viewing bodily expressions of emotion ; Sensory and motor brain areas supporting biological motion perception: neuropsychological and neuroimaging studies ; Computational mechanisms of the visual processing of action stimuli.
