  1. Thomas A. Stoffregen (2004). There May Not Be an a-Not-B Error. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):708-709.
    In the A-not-B situation children reach toward location A when the object is at location B. Researchers interpret this as an error. I question this interpretation. Reaches are inaccurate only if the intention actually is to obtain the hidden object. If this is not the goal, then reaching for A may be accurate and there may be no error to be explained.

  2. Thomas A. Stoffregen & Benoît G. Bardy (2004). Theory Testing and the Global Array. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (6):892-900.
    The new commentaries raise important issues about the target article (Stoffregen & Bardy 2001). The commentaries also highlight some assumptions, often implicit, that underlie traditional interpretations of perception. We argue that evaluation of the global array and its implications for perception requires both analytical research on specification in the global array and new empirical research on the use of information in the global array for the control of action.

  3. Thomas A. Stoffregen & Benoît G. Bardy (2001). On Specification and the Senses. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):195-213.
    In this target article we question the assumption that perception is divided into separate domains of vision, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. We review implications of this assumption for theories of perception and for our understanding of ambient energy arrays (e.g., the optic and acoustic arrays) that are available to perceptual systems. We analyze three hypotheses about relations between ambient arrays and physical reality: (1) that there is an ambiguous relation between ambient energy arrays and physical reality, (2) that there (...)

  4. Thomas A. Stoffregen & Benoît G. Bardy (2001). Specification in the Global Array. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):246-254.
    We discuss issues raised by the commentators, such as specification in single-energy arrays, task-specific pickup of information, general principles of the ecological approach to perception and action, and how specification may be constrained by the facts of physical relativity. While the commentaries raise many important issues we conclude that they do not undermine our argument that specification exists solely in the global array.

    Reaching in the A-not-B situation is not the product of a single person, but rather of a person-person system. We argue that models of embodied cognition distributed over persons may be necessary to capture the essential qualities of evolving behaviors, even those as simple as perseverative reaching.
