    We Are Better Off Without Perfect Perception.Eli Brenner & Jeroen B. J. Smeets - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):215-216.
    Stoffregen & Bardy's target article is based on the assumption that our senses' ultimate purpose is to provide us with perfect information about the outside world. We argue that it is often more important that information be available quickly than that it be perfect. Consequently our nervous system processes different aspects of information about our surrounding as separately as possible. The separation is not between the senses, but between separate aspects of our surrounding. This results in inconsistencies between judgments: sometimes (...)

    Using the Same Information for Planning and Control is Compatible with the Dynamic Illusion Effect.Anne-Marie Brouwer, Eli Brenner & Jeroen B. J. Smeets - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (1):28-29.
    We argue that one can explain why the influence of illusions decreases during a movement without assuming that different visual representations are used for planning and control. The basis for this is that movements are guided by a combination of correctly perceived information about certain attributes (such as a target's position) and illusory information about other attributes (such as the direction of motion). We explain how this can automatically lead to a decreasing effect of illusions when hitting discs that move (...)

    The Mechanisms Responsible for the Flash-Lag Effect Cannot Provide the Motor Prediction That We Need in Daily Life.Jeroen B. J. Smeets & Eli Brenner - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (2):215-216.
    The visual prediction that Nijhawan proposes cannot explain why the flash-lag effect depends on what happens after the flash. Moreover, using a visual prediction based on retinal image motion to compensate for neuronal time delays will seldom be of any use for motor control, because one normally pursues objects with which one intends to interact with ones eyes.

    The Absence of Representations Causes Inconsistencies in Visual Perception.Jeroen B. J. Smeets & Eli Brenner - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (5):1006-1006.
    In their target article, O'Regan & Noë (O&N) give convincing arguments for there being no elaborate internal representation of the outside world. We show two more categories of empirical results that can easily be understood within the view that the world serves as an outside memory that is probed only when specific information is needed.

    Two Joints Are More Than Twice One Joint.Jeroen B. J. Smeets - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (4):779-780.
    An alternative multi-joint extension to the lambda model is proposed. According to this extension, the activity of a muscle depends not only on the difference between lambda and length of that muscle, but also on the difference between lambda and length of other muscles. This 2-D extension can describe more neurophysiological experiments than the extension proposed in the target article.

    Ecological and Constructivist Approaches and the Influence of Illusions.Denise D. J. de Grave, Jeroen B. J. Smeets & Eli Brenner - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (1):103-104.
    Norman tries to link the ecological and constructivist approaches to the dorsal and ventral pathways of the visual system. Such a link implies that the distinction is not only one of approach, but that different issues are studied. Norman identifies these issues as perception and action. The influence of contextual illusions is critical for Norman's arguments. We point out that fast (dorsal) actions can be fooled by contextual illusions while (ventral) perceptual judgements can be insensitive to them. We conclude that (...)
