New Ideas in Psychology is calling papers for a special issue entitled ‘Dynamics and Psychology’.

The purpose of this special issue is to bring together some of the leading views on dynamicism as it relates to psychological phenomena. Although the primary focus is on conceptual ideas regarding the status of dynamicism from the standpoint of Developmental Psychology, Cognitive

Science, Artificial Intelligence, Philosophy, and related fields, empirical work is also welcome insofar as it bears explicitly upon theoretical debate.

New Ideas in Psychology is calling papers for a special issue entitled ‘Dynamics and Psychology’.

The purpose of this special issue is to bring together some of the leading views on dynamicism as it relates to psychological phenomena. Although the primary focus is on conceptual ideas regarding the status of dynamicism from the standpoint of Developmental Psychology, Cognitive

Science, Artificial Intelligence, Philosophy, and related fields, empirical work is also welcome insofar as it bears explicitly upon theoretical debate.

New Ideas in Psychology invites original contributions for the forthcoming special issue on Dynamics and Psychology from a broad scope of areas. Some key research issues and topics relevant to this special issue include:

  • Brain and cognitive function
  • Categorical perception
  • Dynamic computer simulations
  • Dynamic field approach
  • Dynamic systems theory and developmental theory
  • Dynamics of control of processing
  • Dynamics of social interaction
  • Emergence
  • Intermodality
  • Language development
  • Mental representation
  • Motor development
  • Neurobiological constraints
  • Perceptual learning
  • Self-organization of behavior
  • Sensory-motor and perception-action loops
  • Temporality

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS AND DEADLINE

Manuscripts, following the New Ideas in Psychology guidelines should be emailed to Paco Calvo by September 30th, 2006.
