A new framework for a more adequate theoretical treatment of perception and action planning is proposed, in which perceptual contents and action plans are coded in a common representational medium by feature codes with distal reference, showing that the main assumptions are well supported by the data.

A new framework for the understanding of functional relationships between perception and action is discussed. According to this framework, perceived events and planned actions share a common…

Neurocognitive support for the strong relationship between movement observation and movement execution is reported, and the crucial role of the imitative relation of observed and executed action for the described effects is demonstrated.
Movement observation affects movement execution in a simple response task.
Perceptual basis of bimanual coordination
It is suggested that voluntary movements are organized by way of a representation of the perceptual goals, whereas the corresponding motor activity, of sometimes high complexity, is spontaneously and flexibly tuned in.
A common-coding approach to perception and action

This chapter is concerned with some of the issues involved in understanding how perception contributes to the control of actions, as well as the environmental consequences that go along with these bodily events.
Directing attention to movement effects enhances learning: A review
Preliminary evidence is presented indicating that an internal attentional focus constrains the motor system by interfering with natural control processes, whereas an external focus seems to allow automatic control processes to regulate the movements.
Instructions for motor learning: differential effects of internal versus external focus of attention.
The effects of different types of instructions on complex motor skill learning were examined. The instructions were related either to the participant's own body movements (internal focus) or to the…

Processing robustness, a frequently overlooked aspect of processing, predicted fluid intelligence beyond processing speed in old age but not in childhood, suggesting that the causes of more compressed functional organization of intelligence differ between maturation and senescence.
