Title: The analysis of human movement: Communicative Musicality & OpenPose
Movement that predicts an outcome is central to life and central to the Self. The human process of selving (Malloch, 2019), our sense of ongoing coherence as we move with biologically efficient (‘graceful’) purpose through our environment, begins in infancy. In this presentation Stephen will briefly trace his journey from working on the model of Communicative Musicality in the early 2000s (Malloch & Trevarthen, 2009), through his work as a therapist that has been informed by this model, and then outline a project he recently began at MARCS with Emily Tan (Fulbright Fellow) on tracking mother/infant movement using the software OpenPose. Peter will then outline methods of analysis that can be used on these data to explore the interrelationships between the movements of mother and infant as they communicate their thoughts and feelings with each other through their voices and bodies.
Speaker: Dr Kylie Steel, Senior Lecturer in Skill Acquisition and Sports/Movement Performance, School of Science and Health
Title: Eye Movement Behaviours of Australian Rules Football Players
A substantial amount of research has demonstrated the different eye movement behaviours of sports people of different ability levels. However no research to date has specifically examined these behaviours for Australian Rules players. This is a unique invasion sport and requires physical and perceptual-cognitive skills that combine those found in Gaelic footage and other football codes. Of particular interest in this research is how information related to eye movement behaviour may be used to identify potential talent for expedited development in younger players.
