Abstract

The perception-action cycle is viewed within the context of research in manual control. A portrait of a perception-action system is derived from the primitives of control theory in order to evaluate the promise of this perspective for what Warren and McMfllan (1984) have termed "Active Psychophysics." That is, a study of human performance that does justice to the intimate coupling between perception and action.
