P457/657  Ecological and Embodied Cognition

Within the last decade, proponents of "embodied cognition" have
argued that embodiment should be considered as part of the solution
to problems of cognition, perception and action because embodiment
simplifies the problems.  A similar idea was central to J.J. Gibsons
Ecological Approach to Visual Perception published 24 years ago.  He
called it "ecological
realism."  But Embodied Cognition is not Gibsonian Psychology.   We
will
investigate the differences and the similarities and in the process,
learn about Ecological and Embodied approaches to psychology.
