The aim of this book is to launch and explore a new integrated and interdisciplinary perspective, the Embodied Communication Perspective. The embodied communication perspective creates a new framework to reinterpret empirical findings in the cognitive and neurosciences, and to integrate findings from different research fields that have explored similar topics without much crosstalk between them. At the same time, the embodied communication perspective can serve as a guide for engineers who construct artificial agents and robots which should be able to interact with humans.

Keywords:   Embodied Communication Perspective, neurosciences, robots, humans
