We effortlessly recognize all sorts of events- from simple events like people walking to complex events like leaves blowing in the wind. We can also remember and describe these events, and in general, react appropriately to them, for example, in avoiding an approaching object. Our phenomenalease interacting with events belies the complexity of the underlying processes we use to deal with them. Driven by an interest in these complex processes, research on event perception has been growing rapidly. Events are the basis of all experience, so understanding how humans perceive, represent,and act on them will have a significant impact on many areas of psychology. Unfortunately, much of the research on event perception- in visual perception, motor control, linguistics, and computer science- has progressed without much interaction. This volume is the first to bring togethercomputational, neurological, and psychological research on how humans detect, classify, remember, and act on events. The book will provide professional and student researchers with a comprehensive collection of the latest research in these diverse fields.
