Embodied social cognition refers to the relation between bodily states and higher cognitive processes regulating social behavior. It may operate bottom-up (with sensory-motor system affecting cognition) or top-down (with higher cognitive processing affecting motor responses and bodily feelings). After providing specific examples for both types of embodiment, the main theoretical approaches are presented, together with moderator variables that facilitate or constrain embodied social cognition.

Abstract

Embodied social cognition refers to the relation between bodily states and higher cognitive processes regulating social behavior. It may operate bottom-up (with sensory-motor system affecting cognition) or top-down (with higher cognitive processing affecting motor responses and bodily feelings). After providing specific examples for both types of embodiment, the main theoretical approaches are presented, together with moderator variables that facilitate or constrain embodied social cognition.
