(p.1) Chapter 1 Representations for actions
Motor Cognition

Marc Jeannerod

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the elementary component of motor cognition — action representation. A historical survey of the early attempts at answering the question of the embodiment of action representations leads back to the early days of neuropsychology: description of apraxia in brain-lesioned patients gave the first significant account of what can happen when action representations cannot be properly formed and handled. Functional models of action representations are discussed.

Keywords:   brain lesion, motor cognition, action representation, apraxia
