We can work it out: an enactive look at cooperation
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-08-08)
The past years have seen an increasing debate on cooperation and its unique human character. Philosophers and psychologists have proposed that cooperative activities are characterized by shared goals to which participants ...
A genealogical map of the concept of habit
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-21)
The notion of information processing has dominated the study of the mind for over six decades. However, before the advent of cognitivism, one of the most prominent theoretical ideas was that of Habit. This is a concept ...
Spinal circuits can accommodate interaction torques during multijoint limb movements
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-11-11)
The dynamic interaction of limb segments during movements that involve multiple joints creates torques in one joint due to motion about another. Evidence shows that such interaction torques are taken into account during ...
The worldly constituents of perceptual presence

Learning to perceive in the sensor motor approach: Piaget's theory of equilibration interpreted dynamically
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-30)
Learning to perceive is faced with a classical paradox: if understanding is required for perception, how can we learn to perceive something new, something we do not yet understand? According to the sensorimotor approach, ...
The body social: an enactive approach to the self

This paper takes a new look at an old question: what is the human self? It offers a proposal for theorizing the self from an enactive perspective as an autonomous system that is constituted through interpersonal relations. ...
An enactive and dynamical systems theory account of dyadic relationships
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-05-30)
Many social relationships are a locus of struggle and suffering, either at the individual or interactional level. In this paper we explore why this is the case and suggest a modeling approach for dyadic interactions and ...
Modelling Lipid Competition Dynamics in Heterogeneous Protocell Populations
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-07-14)
Recent experimental work in the field of synthetic protocell biology has shown that prebiotic vesicles are able to 'steal' lipids from each other. This phenomenon is driven purely by asymmetries in the physical state or ...
