Biological motion perception of gender

To give you a better idea of the concept of biological motion, view this short video: v=FAAyB5jGx_4. After you have watched the introductory video, go to this website• and participate in a short experiment on biological motion perception of gender; after entering the information, type “gender” as the attribute, and then from “very masculine” to “very feminine”. Complete 20-50 trials. When you are done with the experiment, it should show you your overall percent correct as well as how you did for each gender. After you have watched the video and participated in the experiment, describe how humans perceive biological motion. Be sure and discuss the brain activity and physiological basis of detecting biological motion. What do you think of the research? How did it feel to be a subject in the experiment? What was your overall percent correct at detecting gender? Did you think it was easy or difficult to detect gender in biological motion? Why do you think detecting biological motion is so important to our brains?
