Embodied Cognition

Research Shows Body Movements Can Influence Problem Solving

Physical movements can aid in learning and memory. Research reported by Newswise.com cites Alejandro Lleras’s study at the University of Illinois showing that a person’s ability to solve a problem can be influenced by how he or she moves. Embodied Cognition describes the link between body and mind. Our main goal of this blog is reporting research demonstrating how the body and brain work together to optimize vibrant living and learning. BINGO!

Embodied Cognition defined by the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy and Six Views of Embodied Cognition by Margaret Wilson, University of California, Santa Cruz.
