Abstract: The current investigation examined perceptual and movement responses to evaluate the possibility of unique representations guiding the outcomes of perceptual and motor-based responses. In two experiments the quality of visual luminance edges was manipulated and the outcomes of three visually based tasks, namely perceptual estimates, pointing, and prehensile/grasping movements were measured. The findings provided evidence for the use of unique representations of stimulus features that are task specific.
