Embodied Cognition – A role in rehabilitation

We have long recognised that the mind and body are linked and that one influences the other. However, we used to think that the mind - body link was a top down one. We now see that things are rather different. It is as if the mind acts as a “User interface” rather than an Operating System. The operating traffic goes two ways - from body to mind just as much as mind to body. Embodied cognition is a field of study, seen by some as a ‘silent revolution’ that explores the link between body and mind and this presentation reviews the relevance of this to rehabilitation.
