Product Name: Frontiers Research Topic Ebook

Over the last decade, experimental findings from a variety of paradigms and fields have given rise to a renaissance of the Ideomotor Approach - an elegant theory of voluntary action that was first described by 19th century philosophers. This classical theory as well as its modern extensions put special emphasis on the role of action effects and anticipative processes for action control. While there is growing consensus on the importance of these phenomena, we are just now beginning to understand the integrative power of the ideomotor approach in a variety of fields such as perception and action, imitation, tool-use, and cognitive neuroscience. This Research Topic is devoted to such emerging perspectives on ideomotor action - ranging from neural correlates up to social behaviour. Empirical as well as integrative theoretical contributions are welcome from all fields related to ideomotor theory.
