The human body has long inspired artists, philosophers, musicians, and writers. Researchers in the psychological sciences, however, have only relatively recently begun to acknowledge the role the body plays in perception and cognition. With the general notion of cognition recently broadening to include its embodied nature, researchers accounts of perception have increasingly come to include the bodys special status as a window on the world and to accommodate the specific perceptual requirements for identifying, interpreting, and interacting with other bodies.
