Perception-action and the Müller-Lyer illusion: amplitude or endpoint bias?Exp Brain Res. 2005 Jan; 160(1):71-8.EB
Over the past decade there has been a great deal of controversy regarding the relative impact of visual illusions on cognitive judgments and the control of goal-directed action. We report the results of two experiments indicating that perceptual biases associated with the Müller-Lyer illusion involve a misjudgment of amplitude/extent while aiming biases involve error in the specification of a movement endpoint. This dissociation of perception and action is consistent with some aspects of Milner and Goodale's two visual system model, but not others.
