Duration judgement and familiarity in event perception.

Published 2006 .
Written in English.

About the Book

Two experiments explore the role of familiarity and coherence in a relatively new area of psychological inquiry: event perception. Event familiarity is manipulated by rearranging the frame order of short video clips depicting collisions and falls from NHL hockey games. In Experiment 1, disruption to clip sequence is shown to induce a lengthening of perceived duration, as measured by a duration judgement task. Experiment 2 revealed a similar trend using slideshow-like clips where explicit motion information is absent. These findings are discussed in light of classic familiarity effects in static stimulus perception, and newer findings regarding event segmentation and the relationship between information and duration estimation.
