The special issue aims to collect well-designed, well-powered research on the social modulation of perception-action coupling to better understand the potential top-down effects of high-level social variables on representing others’ actions and tasks. Relevant measures include biological motion perception, automatic imitation, joint action, and any other measure related to perception-action coupling. We explicitly welcome both novel work and replications. Authors submitting to the special issue should justify their sample size and demonstrate that it is appropriate for the question being asked. Submissions will be judged on their theoretical relevance and methodological soundness, but not on their outcome.
The submission portal opens on the 1st of November 1st 2019 and closes on the 1st of February 2020.
