Motor Conjecture Revised
all pure goal-tracking is explained by the Motor Theory;
appearances that goal-tracking is not limited by their abilities to act are due to perceptual animacy.
Where 9-month-olds appear to be tracking goals
in ways not limited by their abilities to act,
they will be subject to signature limits of perceptual animacy
(e.g. subtlety, directionality);
and the processes underlying their abilities will be broadly perceptual.
In infants under 10 months,
it appears that
but not all,
goal-tracking is limited by their abilities to act ...
... and that goal-tracking sometimes manifests in dishabitution or pupil dilation but not proactive gaze.
