Literature Update

As observed by several of our group members, it seems that our ideas are getting more and more credits ... Indeed, we being to see papers (both in general press and in scientific journals) dealing with the same hypothesis than the one we are working on. Meaning that probably we are not too much in a bad direction. Anyway, not related to that, an interesting paper regarding sexual dimorphism of perception of movements. This paper explores the role of visual cues and gender stereotypes in perceptions of biological motion displays.

Johnson KL, McKay LS, Pollick FE (2011) He throws like a girl (but only when he's sad): Emotion affects sex-decoding of biolgical motion displays. Cognition, 119:265-280.
