    This study analyzed the relation between mental time travel (MTT) and the ability to produce a storytelling focusing on global coherence, which is one of the most notable characteristics of narrative discourse. As global coherence is strictly tied to the temporal sequence of the events narrated in a story, we hypothesized that the construction of coherent narratives would rely on the ability to mentally navigate in time. To test such a hypothesis, we investigated the relation between one component of MTT—namely, (...)

    Embodied Cognition E Origine Del Linguaggio: Il Ruolo Cruciale Del Gesto.Ines Adornetti, Alessandra Chiera & Francesco Ferretti - 2018 - Lebenswelt. Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 13:43-56.
    In this paper, we show how the embodied revolution within cognitive sciences has relevant consequences for the topic of language origins. The empirical findings of the embodied approaches, indeed, allow to elaborate a motor theory of language origins according to which human language originated from the gestural communication of our ancestors. Theories that propose that human language emerged from gesture suggest that an important stage in the evolution of human communication was that of pantomime, i.e. a spontaneous bodily mode of (...)

  5. Episodic Future Thinking and Narrative Discourse Generation in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.Andrea Marini, Francesco Ferretti, Alessandra Chiera, Rita Magni, Ines Adornetti, Serena Nicchiarelli, Stefano Vicari & Giovanni Valeri - 2019 - Journal of Neurolinguistics 49:178-188.
    Individuals with Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have difficulties in the recollection of past experiences (Episodic Memory). Accumulating evidence suggests that they might have also difficulties in the ability to imagine potential future scenarios (Episodic Future Thinking, EFT) and in narrative generation skills. This investigation aimed to determine 1) whether impairments of EFT can be identified in a large cohort of children with high functioning ASD using a task with minimal narrative demands; and 2) if such impairments are related to the (...)
