Embodied Cognition in the News

The Boston Globe has a story surveying embodied cognition research. That’s probably the first time I’ve seen that topic covered in the press. The reporter even discusses educational implications on the first and last pages. He interviews various researchers and theorists in the field, including Shaun Gallagher (philosopher, chaired a recent embodied cognition conference), Angeline Lillard (developmental psychologist, recent book on Montessori education), Arthur Glenberg (embodied nature of language comprehension & memory, has a lab), Susan Goldin-Meadow (students/teachers using gestures in math education), Michael Spivey (eye movements and transfer), George Lakoff & Rafael Nunez (embodied nature of mathematics), and others.
