An embodied theory in search of a body: Challenges for a dynamic systems model of infant perseveration
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):56-57 (2001)
In this commentary, we question (1) how embodied Thelen et al.'s model is relative to their aims, and (2) how embodied the behavior of children is in particular response systems, relative to how much dynamic systems theory emphasizes this idea. We close with corrections to mischaracterizations of an alternative, neural network perspective on infant behavior.
