Humans are social beings and physically interacting with other people (social interactions, e.g. when shaking hands) is part of everyone's daily routine. Surprisingly little behavioral research has examined the how humans use visual information to gain knowledge about the social action of other people. In this project we aim to further our knowledge in this relatively novel field. Among other approaches, we use virtual reality to examine the processes involved in the visual recognition of social interactions and when people engage in a social interaction.
