Future directions meeting: sensorimotor contingencies & body knowledge, Monday & Tuesday March 26 & 27th, 2018

In this meeting, we aim to clarify the concepts that underlie current approaches to understanding how human body knowledge develops from birth onwards, with a focus on what we call the “sensorimotor approach” – the idea that body knowledge must necessarily arise by accumulating information about how actions affect incoming sensory stimulation. We will discuss the advantages and shortcomings of this idea, with the aim to work towards defining experimental and theoretical ways to evaluate and improve the research directed at understanding body knowledge development.
