    What Do Mirror Neurons Mirror?Sebo Uithol, Iris van Rooij, Harold Bekkering & Pim Haselager - 2011 - Philosophical Psychology 24 (5):607 - 623.
    Single cell recordings in monkeys provide strong evidence for an important role of the motor system in action understanding. This evidence is backed up by data from studies of the (human) mirror neuron system using neuroimaging or TMS techniques, and behavioral experiments. Although the data acquired from single cell recordings are generally considered to be robust, several debates have shown that the interpretation of these data is far from straightforward. We will show that research based on single-cell recordings allows for (...)

    Joint Attention: Inferring What Others Perceive (and Don't Perceive).Pines Nuku & Harold Bekkering - 2008 - Consciousness and Cognition 17 (1):339-349.
    Research has shown that observers automatically align their attention with another’s gaze direction. The present study investigates whether inferring another’s attended location affects the observer’s attention in the same way as observing their gaze direction. In two experiments, we used a laterally oriented virtual human head to prime one of two laterally presented targets. Experiment 1 showed that, in contrast to the agent with closed eyes, observing the agent with open eyes facilitated the observer’s alignment of attention with the primed (...)

    Flexibility in Embodied Language Processing: Context Effects in Lexical Access.Wessel O. Dam, Inti A. Brazil, Harold Bekkering & Shirley‐Ann Rueschemeyer - 2014 - Topics in Cognitive Science 6 (3):407-424.
    According to embodied theories of language (ETLs), word meaning relies on sensorimotor brain areas, generally dedicated to acting and perceiving in the real world. More specifically, words denoting actions are postulated to make use of neural motor areas, while words denoting visual properties draw on the resources of visual brain areas. Therefore, there is a direct correspondence between word meaning and the experience a listener has had with a word's referent on the brain level. Behavioral and neuroimaging studies have provided (...)

    Learning to Use Novel Objects: A Training Study on the Acquisition of Novel Action Representations.M. van Elk, M. Paulus, C. Pfeiffer, H. T. van Schie & H. Bekkering - 2011 - Consciousness and Cognition 20 (4):1304-1314.
    Many studies have suggested that the motor system is organized in a hierarchical fashion, around the prototypical end location associated with using objects. However, most studies supporting the hierarchical view have used well-known actions and objects that are highly over-learned. Accordingly, at present it is unclear if the hierarchical principle applies to learning the use of novel objects as well. In the present study we found that when learning to use a novel object subjects acquired an action representation of the (...)

    Communicative Intentions Can Modulate the Linguistic Perception-Action Link.Yoshihisa Kashima, Harold Bekkering & Emiko S. Kashima - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (4):361-362.
    Although applauding Pickering & Garrod's (P&G's) attempt to ground language use in the ideomotor perception-action link, which provides an of embodied social interaction, we suggest that it needs to be complemented by an additional control mechanism that modulates its operation in the service of the language users' communicative intentions. Implications for intergroup relationships and intercultural communication are discussed.

    Goals Are Not Implied by Actions, but Inferred From Actions and Contexts.Iris van Rooij, Willem Haselager & Harold Bekkering - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (1):38-39.
    People cannot understand intentions behind observed actions by direct simulation, because goal inference is highly context dependent. Context dependency is a major source of computational intractability in traditional information-processing models. An embodied embedded view of cognition may be able to overcome this problem, but then the problem needs recognition and explication within the context of the new, layered cognitive architecture.

    When Actions Are Carved at the Joints.Merideth Gattis, Harold Bekkering & Andreas Wohlschläger - 1998 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (5):691-692.
    We focus on Byrne & Russon's argument that program-level imitation is driven by hierarchically organized goals, and the related claim that to establish whether observed behavior is evidence of program-level imitation, empirical studies of imitation must use multi-stage actions as imitative tasks. We agree that goals play an indispensable role in the generation of action and imitative behavior but argue that multi-goal tasks, not only multi-stage tasks, reveal program-level imitation.

    The Processing of Task-Irrelevant Emotion and Colour in the Approach-Avoidance Task.Xijia Luo, Mike Rinck, Harold Bekkering & Eni S. Becker - 2018 - Cognition and Emotion 33 (3):548-562.
    ABSTRACTWhen processing information about human faces, we have to integrate different sources of information like skin colour and emotional expression. In 3 experiments, we investigated how these features are processed in a top-down manner when task instructions determine the relevance of features, and in a bottom-up manner when the stimulus features themselves determine process priority. In Experiment 1, participants learned to respond with approach-avoidance movements to faces that presented both emotion and colour features. For each participant, only one of these (...)

    Symbols in Numbers: From Numerals to Magnitude Information.Oliver Lindemann, Shirley-Ann Rueschemeyer & Harold Bekkering - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (3-4):341-342.
    A dual-code model of number processing needs to take into account the difference between a number symbol and its meaning. The transition of automatic non-abstract number representations into intentional abstract representations could be conceptualized as a translation of perceptual asemantic representations of numerals into semantic representations of the associated magnitude information. The controversy about the nature of number representations should be thus related to theories on embodied grounding of symbols.

    What has to Be Learned in Motor Learning?Harold Bekkering, Detlef Heck & Fahad Sultan - 1996 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 19 (3):436-437.
    The present commentary considers the question of what must be learned in different types of motor skills, thereby limiting the question of what should be adjusted in the APG model in order to explain successful learning. It is concluded that an open loop model like the APG might well be able to describe the learning pattern of motor skills in a stable, predictable environment. Recent research on saccadic plasticity, however, illustrates that motor skills performed in an unpredictable environment depend heavily (...)

    Embodied Grounding of Memory: Toward the Effects of Motor Execution on Memory Consolidation.Wessel O. van Dam, Shirley-Ann Rueschemeyer, Harold Bekkering & Oliver Lindemann - forthcoming - Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology.
    Behavioural and neuroscientific research has provided evidence for a strong functional link between the neural motor system and lexical?semantic processing of action-related language. It remains unclear, however, whether the impact of motor actions is restricted to online language comprehension or whether sensorimotor codes are also important in the formation and consolidation of persisting memory representations of the word's referents. The current study now demonstrates that recognition performance for action words is modulated by motor actions performed during the retention interval. Specifically, (...)

    When One Sees What the Other Hears: Crossmodal Attentional Modulation for Gazed and Non-Gazed Upon Auditory Targets.Pines Nuku & Harold Bekkering - 2010 - Consciousness and Cognition 19 (1):135-143.
    Three experiments investigated the nature of visuo-auditory crossmodal cueing in a triadic setting: participants had to detect an auditory signal while observing another agent’s head facing one of the two laterally positioned auditory sources. Experiment 1 showed that when the agent’s eyes were open, sounds originating on the side of the agent’s gaze were detected faster than sounds originating on the side of the agent’s visible ear; when the agent’s eyes were closed this pat-tern of responses was reversed. Two additional (...)
