One way to study embodied cognition is to manipulate the body and look for effects on mental activity; I reviewed an example here. Another common way to investigate whether cognition is embodied is to manipulate the mental activity people are engaged in and look for similar changes in the activity of the body (e.g. postural sway). Here I critique an example of this type of work, focusing on the very small effect sizes and methodological issues with the postural sway measure.
