This volume focuses on the interplay of mind and motion - the bidirectional link between thought and action. In particular,
it investigates the implications that this coupling has for decision making. How do we anticipate the consequences of choices
and how is the brain able to represent these choice options and their potential consequences? How are different options evaluated
and how is a preferred option selected and implemented? This volume addresses these questions not only through an extensive
body of knowledge consisting of individual chapters by international experts, but also through integrative group reports that
pave a runway into the future. The understanding of how people make decisions is of common interest to experts working in
fields such as psychology, economics, movement science, cognitive neuroscience, neuroinformatics, robotics, and sport science.
So far, however, it has mainly been advanced in isolation within distinct research disciplines; in contrast, this book results
from a deliberate assembly of multidisciplinary teams. It offers intense, focused, and genuine interdisciplinary perspective.
It conveys state-of-the-art and outlines future research directions on the hot topic of Mind and Motion (or embodied cognition).
It includes contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, movement scientists, economists, and others.
