Sharing perspective: investigating implicit and embodied cognition through development

Recent observations have demonstrated our ability to automatically simulate other’s perspective, even when this perspective interfere with what we’re doing (« altercentric intrusion »). This 3rd person perspective (PP3P) would be implicit and embodied since it would be influenced by postural signals. Our multi-team project aims to document the development of this implicit PP3P with 5-6 and 7-10 years old children, 12-14 years old teenagers and 18-22 years old young adults. The first objective is to document the extend of the altercentric intrusion phenomenon through keys period of the cognitive and motor development. The second objective is to describe the development of the use of postural implicit signals through different age groups. This project will analyse behavioural and oculomotor data.
