Motor Cognition Research Network
The field of motor cognition is concerned with understanding action, which includes motor execution and simulation processes. It investigates topics including the cognitive aspects of action preparation (e.g., imagery), perceptual expertise (e.g., anticipation) and metacognitive abilities (e.g., meta-imagery). Dr Mark Campbell has published extensively on this topic. He applies a combination of the converging methods approach of cognitive neuroscience combined with the expert performance approach to understanding action. This involves what has been termed the strength-based approach. Research collaborators include Prof. Christian Collet and Prof. Aymeric Guillot (UCB I Lyon), Dr Cornelia Frank (University of Osnabruck, Germany) and members of the world-wide Research in Observation and Action group.
