IntentionDiscrimination.csv The intention discrimination task consisted of two blocks of 60 trials. Task structure conformed to a 2AFC design. Each trial displayed two reach-to-grasp acts in two consecutive temporal intervals: one interval contained a grasp-to-pour act, the other a grasp-to-drink act. Depending on block, participants had to indicate the interval (first or second) containing the grasp-to-drink or grasp-to-pour act. After response, participants were requested to rate the confidence of their choice on a four-level scale. KinematicDiscrimination.csv The kinematic discrimination task included the same stimuli and design as the intention discrimination task, except that participants were asked to indicate the interval containing the grasp with higher (or lower, depending on block) peak vertical height of the wrist. VideoKinematics.csv 64-dimensional space of kinematic features spanning 16 kinematic variables (described in text) over 4 time epochs for each video presented in the discrimination tasks.
