Does action scaling predict ‘the embodiment of culture’? (No.) by @PsychScientists

Andrew Wilson of @PsychScientists recently published a commentary on a paper in Frontiers that he had been a reviewer on. He blogged about it here.

The paper is

Soliman T, Gibson A and Glenberg AM (2013) Sensory motor mechanisms unify psychology: the embodiment of culture. Front. Psychol. 4:885. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2013.00885 (Download)

and the commentary is

Wilson AD (2014). Action scaling of distance perception is task specific and does not predict ‘the embodiment of culture’: A comment on Soliman, Gibson & Glenberg (2013). Front. Psychol. 5:302. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2014.00302 (Download)
