Abstract

In this chapter, we consider how acoustic information contributes to the timing of goal-directed human movements, particularly tasks involving relative motion with objects and surfaces in the environment. We begin by examining whether acoustic information can specify time-to-contact (TTC) during relative approach. Later in the chapter we evaluate the broader role of acoustic information in interceptive timing and describe an investigation of effects of removing acoustic information on co-ordination of one-handed catching. It is concluded that acoustic information has a significant role to play in regulating timing behavior.
