  1. Preschool children's use of perceptual-motor knowledge and hierarchical representational skills for tool making.Gökhan Gönül, Annette Hohenberger & Ece Takmaz - 2021 - Acta Psychologica 103415 (220).
    Although other animals can make simple tools, the expanded and complex material culture of humans is unprecedented in the animal kingdom. Tool making is a slow and late-developing ability in humans, and preschool children find making tools to solve problems very challenging. This difficulty in tool making might be related to the lack of familiarity with the tools and may be overcome by children's long term perceptual-motor knowledge. Thus, in this study, the effect of tool familiarity on tool making was (...)

  2. The effect of aging on facial attractiveness: An empirical and computational investigation.Dexian He, Clifford Ian Workman, Yoed Kennett & Anjan Chatterjee - 2021 - Acta Psychologica 219 (103385):1-11.
    How does aging affect facial attractiveness? We tested the hypothesis that people find older faces less attractive than younger faces, and furthermore, that these aging effects are modulated by the age and sex of the perceiver and by the specific kind of attractiveness judgment being made. Using empirical and computational network science methods, we confirmed that with increasing age, faces are perceived as less attractive. This effect was less pronounced in judgments made by older than younger and middle-aged perceivers, and (...)

  3. Simultaneous self-other integration and segregation support real-time interpersonal coordination in a musical joint action task.H. Liebermann-Jordanidis, Giacomo Novembre, Iring Koch & Peter Keller - 2021 - Acta Psychologica 218 (103348).
    The ability to distinguish between an individual's own actions and those of another person is a requirement for successful joint action, particularly in domains such as group music making where precise interpersonal coordination ensures perceptual overlap in the effects of co-performers' actions. We tested the hypothesis that such coordination benefits from simultaneous integration and segregation of information about ‘self’ and ‘other’ in an experiment using a musical joint action paradigm. Sixteen pairs of individuals with little or no musical training performed (...)
