Andrew’s new paper on affordances for throwing in press at JEPHPP

Andrew has a new paper just in press at JEP:HPP using simulations of projectile motion to quantify the affordances of a target to be hit by a long distance throw. This paper has been 5 years in the making, since the first data collection in 2010, and involved filming expert throwers in Leeds and Wyoming over two experiments with high speed cameras, measuring the release kinematics and then explaining how these varied with target location using the affordance simulations. This was a mammoth undertaking and Andrew is thrilled to finally see it in press!
