About the Author

Glsa Aschersleben worked as research and teaching assistant from 1987 to 1991 at the Psychological Institute of the Technical University in Munich, her main research interests then being man-computer interaction and software ergonomics. Since 1991 she has been a senior researcher at the Department for Cognition and Action at the Max Planck Institute for Psychological Research in Munich. In 1993 she completed her thesis in psychology on Afferent Information Processing and the Synchronization of Events. Her habilitation was on Task Dependent Timing of Perceptual Events (1998). At present her main research interests are: temporal control of actions, cognitive representations of actions, perception-action, coupling, attention, intersensory integration.

Jochen Müsseler worked as research assistant and teaching assistant in Cognitive Psychology and Psycholinguistics at the Universities of Bochum, Bielefeld, and Munich. Since 1996 he has been senior scientist at the Department for Cognition and Action at the Max Planck Institute for Psychological Research in Munich. His current research interests focus on the interface of perception and action, the cognitive representation of actions, the perception of space and time, and the attention mechanisms.
