Abstract
Recent TICS articles discussed the psychophysical evidence in favor of Goodale and Milner's action vs. perception hypothesis. Carey argued that most of the studies investigating the effects of visual illusions on grasping can be reconciled with the notion that the action system resists visual illusions. Bruno suggested a new interpretation of the action vs. perception hypothesis in order to incorporate most of the empirical findings. Here, I argue that action does not resist visual illusions. Even more, the effects on the motor system seem to be comparable to the effects on the perceptual system. This challenges the action vs. perception hypothesis in its current form.
