Joint Perception of a Shared Object: A Minimalist Perceptual Crossing Experiment.

Deschamps L, Lenay C, Rovira K, Le Bihan G, Aubert D - Front Psychol (2016)

Bottom Line: The main results suggest that the mutual awareness of a shared object (SO) arises from the quality of sensorimotor coordination between the partners.Indeed, the presence of a SO acts as a simultaneous affordance that attracts and structures individual perceptive activities, giving both partners the opportunity to co-construct a shared world where their respective actions make sense.We discuss our results by way of an enactive account of social cognition, taking the joint perception of a SO as a first step to account for joint attention.

ABSTRACT
The minimalist perceptual crossing paradigm has emphasized the essential role of interpersonal dynamics on social understanding. Within the particular case of minimalist interaction, it has been argued that interpersonal processes can constitute social cognition, at least partially, which calls for a paradigm shift in social cognition studies. In this paper, we review several perceptual crossing experiments and their theoretical implications, and propose an original experiment to go beyond strictly dyadic interactions. Whereas past experiments have used objects as distracters of dyadic interaction, our experiment aims at integrating objects themselves as the goal of interpersonal coordination. We asked 24 subjects to participate in a minimalist perceptual crossing experiment where they had to decide, based on their on-line interaction in a one-dimensional digital space, which of the objects they perceived was also perceptible by their partner. The main results suggest that the mutual awareness of a shared object (SO) arises from the quality of sensorimotor coordination between the partners. Indeed, the presence of a SO acts as a simultaneous affordance that attracts and structures individual perceptive activities, giving both partners the opportunity to co-construct a shared world where their respective actions make sense. We discuss our results by way of an enactive account of social cognition, taking the joint perception of a SO as a first step to account for joint attention.

Time series of an illustrative trial. The perceptual trajectories of a pair of participants can be spotted across the one-dimensional space (y-axis) over the 75 s (x-axis) of a given trial (i.e., the second trial of the ‘Mono’ condition). Solid light blue and light red lines plot the position of the two participants (P1 and P2), while the dotted blue and red lines represent the position of their respective private object (P1-OwnPO and P2-OwnPO). The dotted black line plots the position of the Shared Object. In this trial, both participants clicked on the Shared Object (blue and red crosses).

Mentions: In order to explain these results, we investigated the perceptual trajectories of the participants in each trial (see Figure 4).
