Stoffregen to publish in Ecological Psychology

Stoffregen2012.jpgProfessor of kinesiology and director of the Affordance Perception-Action Laboratory (APAL), Dr. Thomas A. Stoffregen, has had an article accepted for publication in Ecological Psychology.

The article is titled, "On the physical origins of inverted optic images," and describes how inverted images (such as those formed by the human eye) naturally occur in physical systems that pre-date the origins of life. This research suggests that visual systems, both biological and technological, evolved from pre-existing physical phenomena, rather than being created, de novo, by living things.
