Computer Science IX
Human-Computer Interaction — Computer Science IX — University of Würzburg

Autumn school

Oct. 11, 2015

Sensorimotor approaches predict that social cognition does not primarily result from maintaining and running complex models of intentions and beliefs of other agents, but rather from patterns and regularities in the dynamic sensorimotor coupling between them. The school will take stock of concepts and models that follow this emerging view and illuminate them from the perspectives of relevant fields like social psychology, social cognitive neuroscience, robotics and philosophy of mind.



  • Enactive and embodied views on social cognition
  • Non-reductionist, interaction-based approaches to social cognition
  • Entrainment vs. emulation and mindreading
  • Dynamical systems theory and social cognition
  • Neural mechanisms of social interaction: toward a second-person neuroscience
  • Mutual prediction and adaptation in social interaction
  • Motor resonance during human-robot interaction
