The Activity Modalities – a neurobiological perspective on coordination, action, and thinking
Linköping University, Department of Computer and Information Science. Linköping University, Faculty of Science & Engineering.
2015 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

It is by now well established that thinking is intrinsically related to action: “I do not separate thought from behavior” (Piaget, 1962). Action in turn is not possible without coordination: “I do not see any way to avoid the problem of coordination and still understand the physical basis of life” (Pattee, 1976, p. 176). Thus, mental functions like thinking are ultimately dependent on our neurobiological faculties for coordinating actions. Hence, a central research problem is to unveil the nature of these faculties, which is in focus for this contribution.
