Vision-Movement-Balance; A Study of Visual Kinaesthesis (1974)

Dave Lee in the Swinging Room

Classic video by David N. Lee and J. R. Lishman from the Perception-in-Action Laboratory at the Department of Psychology, Edinburgh University. It is one of the first video’s (if not THE first) to document Dave Lee’s revolutionary ideas on optic flow. The video is largely based on the ideas presented in a scientific paper written by Lee and Aronson on  the Swinging Room (full title: VISUAL PROPRIOCEPTIVE CONTROL OF STANDING IN HUMAN INFANTS, Perception and Psychophysics, 1974 vol:15 iss:3 pg:529 -532.
