    Atten Percept Psychophys 76:460-72. 2014
    ..The judgments were grossly inaccurate prior to receiving feedback. These findings indicate that experience facilitates perceptual-motor recalibration for certain types of actions...

    Department of Psychology, New York University, New York, NY 10003, USA
    Dev Psychol 48:1254-61. 2012
    ..Furthermore, independent measures of perception were equivalent between the two penalty conditions, suggesting that differences in action selection resulted from different penalties, not lack of perceptual sensitivity...
  3. pmc Perception of passage through openings depends on the size of the body in motion
    John M Franchak
    New York University, New York, NY, USA
    Exp Brain Res 223:301-10. 2012
    ..The differences between horizontal and vertical openings illustrate that walkers account for the dynamic properties of walking in addition to scaling decisions to body dimensions...

    John M Franchak
    New York University, New York, NY 10003, USA
    Child Dev 82:1738-50. 2011
    ..Gaze toward the destination of infants' hand movements was common during manual actions and crawling, but looks toward obstacles during leg movements were less frequent...

    John M Franchak
    Department of Psychology, New York University, 6 Washington Place, New York, NY 10003, USA
    Vision Res 50:2758-65. 2010
    ..Action feedback aided perceptual judgments by facilitating scaling to body dimensions: Judgments in the action-first group were strongly related to height, weight, and torso size, whereas judgments in the perception-first group were not...

    John M Franchak
    Department of Psychology, New York University, New York, NY 10003, USA
    Vision Res 50:2766-74. 2010
    ..We discuss several possibilities for why obstacle navigation may shift from foveal to peripheral control over development...
