ABSTRACT If cognition is broadly shaped by an interplay of embodied mechanisms, then cognitive deficits could be profitably reinterpreted as disruptions of embodiment. Despite its simplicity and obviousness, this
straightforward implication has not been systematically assessed in the literature, let alone with a focus on specific target populations featuring systematic disturbances in circumscribed higher-order domains. The present Special Issue seeks to bridge such a gap by delving into the intimate links
between movement disorders and impairments of syntax and action language (namely, verbal expressions alluding to bodily movements).
RESUMEN

En este trabajo proponemos reinterpretar diversos déficits lingüísticos en múltiples trastornos motores como alteraciones de mecanismos corporizados. Señalamos las implicancias teóricas de esta concepción para caracterizar la organización cerebral del lenguaje y, más particularmente, para detectar posibles marcadores cognitivos de dichas enfermedades. Así, nuestra propuesta buscar tender un puente entre el marco de la cognición corporizada (embodied cognition) y la neurociencia traslacional.
