This presentation is a variation of what I have previously presented at M and A. Earlier I presented parts of these data in detail. For this presentation, I will focus on the how the structure of the entire training, is accomplished.
I will describe two ways in which a Japanese biochemist and technician structure their scientific training activity. First I will describe how they segment this training activity from previous and subsequent activities. Then I will describe how they structure that same training into smaller units. This study reveals that the structuring actions of the biochemist and technician are complex, negotiated, sequentially organized and should be considered units of interaction in their own right.
Even though we experience perceiving as automatic and instantaneous, perception involves multiple stages of processing. The final stage may be social and cultural, following the stages of extracting and binding physical information.
