Comparing Biological Motion Perception in Two Distinct Human Societies

Abstract : How is the information derived from a small number of moving dots transformed into and interpreted as a coherent form? All humans, independent of their environment, have perceptual mechanisms for detecting signs of life from 'local' motions in their surroundings. We can extract this local motion information very efficiently, allowing us to rapidly interpret the global movements or actions of another human or animal.
