  1. Anne Springer, Simone Brandstädter & Wolfgang Prinz (2013). Dynamic Simulation and Static Matching for Action Prediction: Evidence From Body Part Priming. Cognitive Science 37 (5):936-952.
    Accurately predicting other people's actions may involve two processes: internal real-time simulation (dynamic updating) and matching recently perceived action images (static matching). Using a priming of body parts, this study aimed to differentiate the two processes. Specifically, participants played a motion-controlled video game with either their arms or legs. They then observed arm movements of a point-light actor, which were briefly occluded from view, followed by a static test pose. Participants judged whether this test pose depicted a coherent continuation of (...)

    Predicting the actions of other individuals is crucial for our daily interactions. Recent evidence suggests that the prediction of object-directed arm and full-body actions employs the PMd. Thus, the neural substrate involved in action control may also be essential for action prediction. Here, we aimed to address this issue and hypothesised that disrupting the PMd impairs action prediction. Using fMRI-guided coil navigation, rTMS (5 pulses, 10 Hz) was applied over the left PMd and over the vertex (control region) while participants (...)

    In this paper, we put forward an interdisciplinary framework describing different levels of self-representations, namely non-conceptual, conceptual and propositional self-representations. We argue that these different levels of self-representation are differently affected by cultural upbringing: while propositional self-representations rely on “theoretical” concepts and are thus strongly influenced by cultural upbringing, non-conceptual self-representations are uniform across cultures and thus universal. This differentiation offers a theoretical specification of the distinction between an independent and interdependent self-construal put forward in cross-cultural psychology. Hence, this does (...)
