Deictic codes, embodiment of cognition, and the real world

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):746-746 (1997)
It is unlikely that Ballard et al.'s embodiment theory has general applicability to cognition because it is based on experiments that neglect the importance of meaning, purpose, and learning in cognitive tasks. Limitations of the theory are illustrated with examples from everyday life and the results of recent experiments using cognitive and visuomotor tasks.
