Examples of the point-light walkers used in these experiments. Left Panel: An example of the 15 element point-light display used for the experiments reported here. This is the +1 figure from the continuum. The elements delineate the major joints of the human body (shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles, hips) plus the head, sternum, and mid-abdomen. Right Panel: Depiction of the motion path for each element represented in the Left Panel. Note the asymmetries in the motion paths of elements on each side of the body (most obvious in the ankles, elbows, and wrists). Those asymmetries are ‘average’ asymmetries derived from 100 walkers used in the construction of the models. Note too that the asymmetries are not visible until the model moves.
