|Abstract||The role of perceptual-motor experience in affordance perception is fundamental in understanding the reciprocity of perception and action and their relevance to cognition. An experiment investigating perception of the maximum height to which actors could reach, jump to reach, and sit was conducted. The role of perceptual-motor experience was investigated by evaluating the performance of basketball players and non-basketball players. Reaching, reaching-with-jump and sitting height estimates were compared to the actual action capabilities. Basketball players more accurately perceived a skill-relevant affordance (maximum height another could reach by jumping) than non-basketball players, but perceived a non-skill-relevant affordance (the maximum height of a surface upon which one could sit) with the same accuracy as non-basketball players. These results demonstrate the role of specific action experience in perception of affordances for others.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
