Neither Shaken nor Stirred: Reply to Bertenthal and Scheutz
Cooper, Richard P.; Catmur, Caroline; Heyes, Cecilia
Cognitive Science, v37 n4 p642-645 May-Jun 2013
In this article, the authors state that the crux of the debate between themselves and Bertenthal and Scheutz (2013) (B&S) is whether imitative compatibility effects reflect the operation of specialized imitation-related mechanisms or instead arise from the same associative learning processes thought to underlie spatial compatibility effects. The authors' conclusions were, and remain, more modest than B&S imply. The authors do not claim that their model rules out the possibility that spatial and imitative compatibility depend on qualitatively distinct processes, but they believe it supports a "same mechanisms" over a "different mechanisms" view.
