    This article presents results from a multidisciplinary research project on the integration and transfer of language knowledge into robots as an empirical paradigm for the study of language development in both humans and humanoid robots. Within the framework of human linguistic and cognitive development, we focus on how three central types of learning interact and co-develop: individual learning about one's own embodiment and the environment, social learning (learning from others), and learning of linguistic capability. Our primary concern is how these (...)

    Further to the Left: Stress-Induced Increase of Spatial Pseudoneglect During the COVID-19 Lockdown.Federica Somma, Paolo Bartolomeo, Federica Vallone, Antonietta Argiuolo, Antonio Cerrato, Orazio Miglino, Laura Mandolesi, Maria Clelia Zurlo & Onofrio Gigliotta - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    BackgroundThe measures taken to contain the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, such as the lockdown in Italy, do impact psychological health; yet, less is known about their effect on cognitive functioning. The transactional theory of stress predicts reciprocal influences between perceived stress and cognitive performance. However, the effects of a period of stress due to social isolation on spatial cognition and exploration have been little examined. The aim of the present study was to investigate the possible effects and impact of the (...)

    Behavioral Restriction Determines Left Attentional Bias: Preliminary Evidences From COVID-19 Lockdown.Anna Lardone, Patrizia Turriziani, Pierpaolo Sorrentino, Onofrio Gigliotta, Andrea Chirico, Fabio Lucidi & Laura Mandolesi - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    During the COVID-19 lockdown, individuals were forced to remain at home, hence severely limiting the interaction within environmental stimuli, reducing the cognitive load placed on spatial competences. The effects of the behavioral restriction on cognition have been little examined. The present study is aimed at analyzing the effects of lockdown on executive function prominently involved in adapting behavior to new environmental demands. We analyze non-verbal fluency abilities, as indirectly providing a measure of cognitive flexibility to react to spatial changes. Sixteen (...)
