New CIA Lab Paper; Cross et al, ‘Imagined Steps: Mental Simulation of Coordinated Rhythmic Movements Effects on Pro-Sociality’

CIA Lab alum Dr Liam Cross has just had his second paper published from his PhD;

Cross, L., Atherton, G., Wilson, A. D., & Golonka, S. (2017). Imagined Steps: Mental Simulation of Coordinated Rhythmic Movements Effects on Pro-Sociality. Frontiers in Psychology, 8:1798. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2017.01798

This is part of Liam’s work on the mechanisms connecting coordinated rhythmic movement to pro-social behaviour in which we also did a large scale replication to check a weird result (that the replication killed!)

Full text available shortly at the above link, we’re just finishing author proofs. Congratulations Liam!

Cross et al, 2016, How Moving Together Brings Us Together

Our recently graduated PhD student Liam Cross has just published his first paper from his PhD in a Research Topic, Dynamics of Joint-Action, Social Coordination and Multi-Agent Activity. Thanks to Mike Richardson for the invite to submit and our reviewers for their fair and useful feedback!

And congratulations Liam! One down, three to go 🙂

Andrew’s new paper on affordances for throwing in press at JEPHPP

Andrew has a new paper just in press at JEP:HPP using simulations of projectile motion to quantify the affordances of a target to be hit by a long distance throw. This paper has been 5 years in the making, since the first data collection in 2010, and involved filming expert throwers in Leeds and Wyoming over two experiments with high speed cameras, measuring the release kinematics and then explaining how these varied with target location using the affordance simulations. This was a mammoth undertaking and Andrew is thrilled to finally see it in press!

Sabrina’s new paper is out in Ecological Psychology

Sabrina has a new paper out in Ecological Psychology, called ‘Laws and Conventions in Language Related Behaviours‘. It’s the paper that comes from the talk she gave last year at a conference at UConn and is part of a special issue of papers from the conference.

Andrew and Sabrina have a new commentary in Frontiers in Psychology

Andrew and Sabrina have just published a critical commentary on an embodied cognition paper in which they highlight some fatal conceptual flaws. Andrew blogged this critique a while back and that post has the history and context of the comment.
