Perceptual-Motor Dissociation

Intuitively, perception is the process of becoming aware of physical objects or phenomena through the senses. However, to define it as an observable phenomenon without resorting to a highly subjective concept such as awareness, one must include additional measurable criteria. A less involved and more up to date view is that perception is the mental function by means of which the physical world (including within body processes) is represented, and the process by means of which this function interacts with the physical world, together with the consequence of this interaction. This definition dissolves from the start the perception-action dissociation dilemma: according to it the two concepts are indissociable.
