This volume investigates the implications of how our brain directs our movements on decision-making. An extensive body of knowledge in chapters from international experts is presented as well as integrative group reports discussing new directions for future research. The understanding of how people make decisions is of central interest to experts working in fields such as psychology, economics, movement science, cognitive neuroscience, neuroinformatics, robotics, and sport science. For the first time the current volume provides a multidisciplinary overview of how action and cognition are integrated in the planning of and decisions about action.

Key Features

  • Offers intense, focused, and genuine interdisciplinary perspective
  • Conveys state-of-the-art and outlines future research directions on the hot topic of mind and motion (or embodied cognition)
  • Includes contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, movement scientists, economists, and others


Neuroscientists, psychologists, movement scientists, sports scientists, and economists
