The dynamics of embodiment: a field theory of infant perseverative reaching

E Thelen, G Schöner, C Scheier, L B Smith
2001 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
The demonstration supports an embodied view by casting the mental events involved in perception, planning, deciding, and remembering in the same analogic dynamic language as that used to describe bodily  ...  We offer a formal dynamic theory and model based on cognitive embodiment that both simulates the known A-not-B effects and offers novel predictions that match new experimental results.  ...  So what is the right level of explanation We set out to model a well-researched behavioral phenomenon using abstract dynamics that, in relatively few parameters, captured the sum of the complex, time-and-age  ...

The dynamics of embodiment: A field theory of infant perseverative reaching

Esther Thelen, Gregor Schöner, Christian Scheier, Linda B. Smith
2001 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
So what is the right level of explanation We set out to model a well-researched behavioral phenomenon using abstract dynamics that, in relatively few parameters, captured the sum of the complex, time-and-age  ...  We are very happy with the model's strength in this regard, and especially in suggesting new experiments, which have only increased our confidence in the basic assumptions of the model.  ...  mentation, the further link between mentation and brain dynamics is weak.  ...

Parkinson's disease.  ...  Incidence and prevalence of ET increase with aging, but it should be kept in mind that the disease can occur at any age.  ...  He is active in international (European and transcontinental) networks on tremor.  ...

Poster Session II

2015 Neuropsychopharmacology  
The salience network mediates between the central executive network and default mode network to maintain an adaptive balance between internal mentation and externally-oriented focus and task execution.  ...  Taken together, findings imply compensatory processes, in addition to de-differentiation of networks during cognitive control in older adults with depression.  ...  To assess relation with brain functioning, emerging factor loadings were used as regressors in the resting-state analysis.  ...

2009 Epilepsia  
The following demographic variables were studied. Age, gender, years with epilepsy, BMI, and maximum number of anti epileptic drugs used in combination. See table 1.  ...  The drug group combination information was looked at in both normal femoral neck and lumbar spine measurement groups and with abnormal femoral neck and lumbar spine bone loss groups.  ...  The default-mode network (DMN) of the brain supports resting consciousness [1] .  ...
