This chapter moves from the structure of how events are represented in thought, generally, to how the structure of events is perceived in the here and now. It focuses on the question of segmentation: How does the human perceptual system parse the ongoing stream of experience into meaningful chunks? But it deals with a number of other issues in perception along the way.

Keywords:   perception, vision, event, causality, biological motion, event segmentation, event segmentation theory (EST)
