Psychology is now prepared for unified theories of cognition--so says Allen Newell, a number one investigator in machine technology and cognitive psychology. no longer each person will agree on a unmarried set of mechanisms that would clarify the whole variety of human cognition, yet such theories are nearby and we must always attempt to articulate them.

' Introspection, however, easily learns us that we are hardly aware, and if so then only very roughly and approximately, of the position of the eyes in their orbits. In his 'Remarks suggested by dr. Gordon Holmes's paper, "Disturbances of visual orientation'", Berry (1918, p.

Schafer and Marcus (1973) have reported reduced amplitude of AEPS when the subject themselves generates the salient auditory stimulus, compared with the control condition in which the stimulus is an externally-triggered event. This provides neurophysiological evidence that the stimulus was tagged as flowing from the subject's own motor action for the purposes of perceptual processing. 4 Concluding Speculations As a psychologist of action, I am often unsure what to extract from dissociations between perception and action, such as the one Bridgeman provides here.

Therefore, in subsequent experiments we tried to arrive at more precise estimates of the percentage underestimation of the position of the bar. In these experiments a moving cursor was used for indicating the perceived position. While these cursor experiments had their shortcomings - observers cannot really be prevented from following the cursor with eyes and head - we were nevertheless able to conclude that, under the exposure conditions used, observers underestimate the eccentricity of the bar by about 10% (see Van der Heijden et al, in press).
