Extrapersonal space is the space that surrounds us. Information about events in extrapersonal space is signaled to the brain through receptors located in, for example, the eyes, ears, and nose. In many cases, this information is acted upon and a motor output is produced that is appropriate for the behavioral circumstances that triggered it; for example, a movement toward or away from an object.
