Affective Proprioception

  title={Affective Proprioception},
  author={Jonathan Cole and Barbara Gail Montero and Poole},
Proprioception has been considered, within neuroscience, in the context of the control of movement. Here we discuss a possible second role for this ‘sixth sense’, pleasure in and of movement, homologous with the recently described affective touch. We speculate on its evolution and place in human society and suggest that pleasure in movement may depend not on feedback but also on harmony between intention and action. Examples come from expert movers, dancers and sportsmen, and from those without… 
How are you feeling ? Proprioceptive keys of emotional intelligence
Proprioception plays a crucial role in both the expression and the perception of emotions. The proprioceptive emotional state is reflected in posture, gestures, facial expressions and voice
Movement for Movement’s Sake? On the Relationship Between Kinaesthesia and Aesthetics
Movement and, more particularly, kinesthesia as a modality and as a metaphor has become of interest at the intersection of phenomenology and cognitive science. In this paper I wish to combine three
The empathy and the structuring sharing modes of movement sequences in the improvisation of contemporary dance
Dance, an activity endowed with intentional expressivity and intrinsic affectivity, has been the target of neuroscientific research since the last decade of the 20th century. We can make several
Two-Level Model of Embodied Cognition in Music
In this paper, I propose that embodied cognition in music has two distinct levels. The “surface” level relates to the apparent corporeal articulation such as the activated psychomotor program of a
Continuous Recognition of Player's Affective Body Expression as Dynamic Quality of Aesthetic Experience
This paper investigated the possibility of automatically recognizing the emotional expressions conveyed by the player's body movement in a Nintendo sport game and showed that the automatic recognition system achieved recognition rates comparable to human observers' benchmarks.

‘TranSonic’ Perception in Interactive ChoreoSonic Performance Practice
This paper reflects on the creation and perception of an interactive spatial ChoreoSonic performance environment. The term ‘Transonic Perception’ is introduced to describe the intimate bodily
Dancing in the Dark: described dances and unseen choreographies
This thesis enquires how a rethinking of sight as the primary sense for experiencing dance performance can instigate new choreographies that embody the interplay between seen and unseen, described
Merleau-Ponty on the Mirror Stage: Affect and the Genesis of the Body Proper in the Sorbonne Lectures
While Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenology of Perception relies on the descriptive register of the body proper, his Sorbonne lectures on child psychology investigate the genesis of the experience of a body
Pianism: Performance Communication and the Playing Technique
It was proposed that music students be trained in the mechanical aspects of upper-body use in the playing technique, and practice strategies, with specialist pedagogy for children to develop motor skills for efficient playing, and training methods fostering an appreciation of the communicative aspects of music performance.

Embodied Simulation:From Neurons to Phenomenal Experience
The same neural structures involved in the unconscious modeling of our acting body in space also contribute to our awareness of the lived body and of the objects that the world contains.

Functional anatomical work has detailed an afferent neural system in primates and in humans that represents all aspects of the physiological condition of the physical body that might provide a foundation for subjective feelings, emotion and self-awareness.
Proprioception as an Aesthetic Sense
The aesthetic senses are the senses by which we experience beauty, grace, and other aesthetic properties. Vision and hearing are commonly recognized as aesthetic senses, while smell, taste, and touch
Action recognition in the premotor cortex.
It is proposed that mirror neurons form a system for matching observation and execution of motor actions, similar to that of mirror neurons exists in humans and could be involved in recognition of actions as well as phonetic gestures.
The Delusion of Inanimate Doubles
Evidence that the Capgras delusion has long been held to be specific for close personal relationships is presented and the implications for accepting psychodynamic explanations of the phenomenon are discussed.
Unmyelinated tactile afferents signal touch and project to insular cortex
Findings identify CT as a system for limbic touch that may underlie emotional, hormonal and affiliative responses to caress-like, skin-to-skin contact between individuals.
Pride and a Daily Marathon
This entrancing book is well worth reading for neurologists, rehabilitation specialists, and all readers who admire ``true grit,'' and may be read on many levels.
Lived Body and Environment
Merleau-Ponty developed a phenomenology of the body that promoted a non-dualistic account of human existence. In this paper I intend to develop Merleau-Ponty's analysis further by questioning his
Different types of slowly conducting afferent units in cat skeletal muscle and tendon.
In chloralose‐anaesthetized cats, the impulse activity of single afferent units conducting at less than 30 m s‐1 and having receptive fields in the triceps surae muscle or the calcaneal tendon, was
