What is visual anticipation and how much does it rely on the dorsal stream?

Abstract : Van der Kamp, Rivas, van Doorn, and Savelsbergh (2008) have recently introduced an ecologically-inspired framework for visual anticipation in ball sports. Their framework emphasizes the interacting contributions of the dorsal and ventral systems (e.g., Milner & Goodale, 1995). The framework is based on the idea that the ventral system is involved in perceiving which actions a particular situation affords and the dorsal system in the visual guidance of the action. In this commentary we further discuss the function of visual anticipation in ball sports. More specifically, we redefine the concept of visual anticipation and examine the theoretical consequences of the redefinition.
