Embodied cognition highlights the role of the body in cognitive processing. Yet, very few studies within the field of embodiment have explored more specifically how physiological parameters impact cognition on the contrary to research conducted in the psychophysiology field. This symposium proposes to connect these two fields by introducing new psychophysiological data with more theoretical accounts at the crossroad of psychology, neuroscience, sport, physiology, and artificial intelligence. Notably, some presentations will focus on how the heart rate variability contributes to memory, decision-making or perception, others on interoception or on the importance of embodied simuation for biological systems.

Keywords: embodied cognition, psychophysiology, heart rate variability, embodied simulation, interoception
