The situated nature of memory is here discussed with a specific focus on body memory. The chapter describes two studies on the effects of dynamic movement qualities on memory and one study on the Spatial Agency Bias, that is the ten- dency to envisage action as evolving in the same direction in which we habitu- ally read and write. In addition to showing the situated nature of memory, we will for the first time provide evidence for its dynamic aspect. Situated memory will be discussed as functional in the interaction with the environment and body feedback as a key underlying mechanism.

Abstract

The situated nature of memory is here discussed with a specific focus on body memory. The chapter describes two studies on the effects of dynamic movement qualities on memory and one study on the Spatial Agency Bias, that is the ten- dency to envisage action as evolving in the same direction in which we habitu- ally read and write. In addition to showing the situated nature of memory, we will for the first time provide evidence for its dynamic aspect. Situated memory will be discussed as functional in the interaction with the environment and body feedback as a key underlying mechanism.
