5° Coloquio Internacional de Ciencias Cognitivas
Dr. Jesús M. Siqueiros García
Título de ponencia:
"The shared body awareness in dance, a proprioceptive account"
Resumen de ponencia:
Togetherness might be fundamental to social understanding among humans however, this experience has been rarely addressed as such. Mostly from a third person perspective the experience and the apparent pro-social behaviour are described as resulting from movement coordination and synchronization among participants. Recent literature focus on the idea that moving to the same rhythm generates neurophysiological coordination and synchronization (Bernardi et al. 2009; Sänger et al., 2012; Acquadro et al., 2016; Koban et al., 2017). Different from these approaches, we believe it is necessary an embodied and naturalistic approach to togetherness that can address the emergence of the first person experience. The notion of togetherness that we are proposing, therefore, implies two things: first, togetherness is an experiential phenomenon that is necessarily emergent from the interaction among embodied and moving agents in which the interaction becomes autonomous as a self-organizing system; second, skillful proprioceptive own habits has an essential role in self-awareness and shared awareness. In this sense, the concept of togetherness goes much further than that of coordination or synchronization, however, the experience of togetherness could be a necessary condition for the emergence of coordination. For us, the bottom line is that togetherness is an experience that results from an expanded and coupled skilled proprioception which can be described as emerging from a system with its own dynamics that is under-defined by its participants as it constrains their behaviour.

Sus intereses están en el estudio de sistemas complejos, vida artificial, cognición social corporizada y sostenibilidad. Actualmente está interesado en la utilización de tecnologías de inmersión y medios interactivos para estudiar el papel de la kinesfera de un agente humano en su interacción con otros sistemas dinámicos, sean estos agentes humanos o no.
