Abstract
At Repmo2000 I will discuss a joint project that Ian M. Thornton and I are currently pursuing. The question is whether effects of representational momentum can also be found in the motor system if participants do not judge the size of an object, but act on it. We use a virtual environment with computer graphics and two robot arms (PHANToM--devices). This setup enables us to generate virtual visual stimuli and virtual haptic stimuli and to have participants grasp the stimuli. Participants will be confronted with a standard representational momentum situation and will judge the size of the stimuli as well as grasp them.
