for many humans, prism variation is an a laugh demonstration, first skilled possibly in an introductory psychology direction. This monograph relates this ordinary phenomenon to the bigger context of cognitive technological know-how, specifically motor keep watch over and studying. the 1st half sketches the historical past thoughts essential to comprehend the contribution of prism variation to the bigger factor of adaptive perceptual-motor functionality including:
* a evaluation of the elemental thoughts of motor keep watch over and studying that permit strategic reaction within the prism variation situation;
* the advance of a speculation approximately spatial illustration and spatial mapping and an creation to the fundamental proposal of adaptive spatial alignment; and
* a contrasting view of perceptual and motor studying and a evaluation of facts for the involvement of nonassociative and associative studying in prism adaptation.

without delay interested by facts and idea in prism version, the second one half presents:
* an summary of prism version technique and an inventory of a number of empirical conclusions from past learn that restricted improvement of theoretical framework;
* a thought of strategic perceptual-motor keep an eye on and studying which permits adaptive functionality in the course of prism publicity, yet doesn't without delay contain adaptive spatial alignment;
* an extention of the idea to incorporate realignment procedures which right for the spatial misalignment between sensorimotor platforms produced by way of prisms; and
* an illustration of the way conventional matters in prism variation can be rephrased when it comes to the current theoretical framework.

The final a part of this quantity reports the study carried out in constructing and checking out the current conception of prism edition. It summarizes the preliminary investigations (employing a naturalistic publicity setting), experiences a few extra rigorous checks with an experimentally restricted study paradigm, issues out the extra basic theoretical matters raised via the authors' research of prism edition, and makes particular feedback for additional examine in the prism version paradigm.
