The structure of the chapter is roughly as follows. We begin by contrasting embodiment theories with their main competitors—theories that emphasize the amodal, propositional nature of mental representations. We then review some evidence for embodied processing in more cognitive domains. We then move on to a detailed description of research on embodied processing’s role in emotional perception and emotional language comprehension, the role of embodied metaphor in understanding interpersonal… Expand
Dynamic grounding of emotion concepts
TLDR
Empirical work on emotion concepts is reviewed and it is shown how it highlights their grounded, yet dynamic and context-sensitive nature, consistent with recent developments in embodied cognition that allow concepts to be linked to sensorimotor systems, yet be flexibly sensitive to current representational and action needs. Expand
Embodied and exbodied mind in clinical psychology. A proposal for a psycho-social interpretation of mental disorders
TLDR
A new framework called Exbodiment is proposed and defined, complementary to the Embodiment approach to cognition, to help clinicians to better understand and explain the role of culture in the onset and maintenance of mental disorders. Expand
Cognition and emotion: on paradigms and metaphors
  • D. Wentura
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Cognition & emotion
  • 2019
TLDR
It is argued that the subsymbolic models used in PDP models are better suited to capturing characteristics of emotional processes than symbolic models, which were prevalent in earlier years. Expand
Précis on The Cognitive-Emotional Brain.
  • L. Pessoa
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The Behavioral and brain sciences
  • 2015
TLDR
The book summarizes five areas of research that support a integrative view of emotion and cognition and makes four arguments to organize each area. Expand
Concepts in context: Processing mental state concepts with internal or external focus involves different neural systems
TLDR
The results of this neuroimaging study suggest that mental state concepts are represented in a dynamic way, using context-relevant interoceptive and sensorimotor resources. Expand
Investigating the Effects of Embodiment on Emotional Categorization of Faces and Words in Children and Adults
TLDR
The results of this series of experiments suggest that embodiment effects either do not significantly impact valence-based categorization or are not strong enough to be detected by the approach considering the sample size in the present study. Expand
The architecture of embodied cue integration: insight from the “motivation as cognition” perspective
  • I. Shalev
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Front. Psychol.
  • 2015
TLDR
It is argued that embodied cues are integrated according to their momentary functions within each individual’s system of goals, and three types of constraints, adopted from goal systems theory (Kruglanski et al., 2002), were invoked to explain the process of embodied cues integration. Expand
On paradigms and metaphors 1 Running head: ON PARADIGMS AND METAPHORS Cognition and emotion: On paradigms and metaphors
The field of cognition and emotion is characterized as the cognitive psychology of evaluative and affective processes. The most important development in this field is the fruitful adoption ofExpand
Embodying Hot Cognition
Distortions of emotional cognition are core processes involved in disorders of emotion. To understand the embodied simulations involved in distorted emotional cognition, one has to first understandExpand
Bio-behavioral synchrony promotes the development of conceptualized emotions.
TLDR
It is suggested here that infants can learn emotion concepts for the purpose of allostasis regulation, and that conceptualization is key component in emotional development. Expand

Embodiment of emotion concepts.
TLDR
Experiment 4, using a property generation task, provided support for the conclusion that emotions embodied in conceptual tasks are context-dependent situated simulations rather than associated emotional reactions and implications for theories of embodied simulation and for emotion theories are discussed. Expand
Embodiment in Attitudes, Social Perception, and Emotion
TLDR
This work proposes that theories of embodied cognition, such as the Perceptual Symbol Systems (PSS) account (Barsalou, 1999), explain and integrate findings, and shows how the PSS account addresses criticisms that have previously posed problems for the general embodiment approach. Expand
Embodying Emotion
TLDR
Recent findings provide a scientific account of the familiar contention that “when you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you”. Expand
Embodiment as a unifying perspective for psychology
Adaptive action is the function of cognition. It is constrained by the properties of evolved brains and bodies. An embodied perspective on social psychology examines how biological constrains giveExpand
The emotive neuroscience of embodiment
Embodiment in psychological research and theory often refers to the idea that the body plays a crucial role in emotive, motivational, and cognitive processes. We review past and recent embodimentExpand

Abstract The approach/avoidance effect refers to the finding that valenced stimuli trigger approach and avoidance actions. Markman and Brendl [Markman, A. B., & Brendl, M. (2005). ConstrainingExpand
Embodied experience and linguistic meaning
  • R. Gibbs
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Brain and Language
  • 2003
TLDR
The case for an embodied view of linguistic meaning is made and several new lines of research from both linguistics and psychology that explore the importance of embodied perception and action in people's understanding of words, phrases, and texts are discussed. Expand
Six views of embodied cognition
  • M. Wilson
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Psychonomic bulletin & review
  • 2002
TLDR
The sixth claim has received the least attention in the literature on embodied cognition, but it may in fact be the best documented and most powerful of the six claims. Expand
The Neural Career of Sensory-motor Metaphors
TLDR
The view that the understanding of metaphoric action retains a link to sensory-motor systems involved in action performance is supported, and it is proposed that anterior inferior parietal lobule serves as an interface between sensory-Motor and conceptual systems and plays an important role in both domains. Expand
Grounded cognition.
TLDR
Grounded cognition proposes that modal simulations, bodily states, and situated action underlie cognition, and accumulating behavioral and neural evidence supporting this view is reviewed from research on perception, memory, knowledge, language, thought, social cognition and development. Expand
