摘  要:

Embodied simulation theory holds that people re-use their own experience to understand others’ mental states (i.e., mentalizing). The current study examines the spontaneous use of embodied egocentric transformation (EET) in understanding false beliefs in the minds of others. EET involves the participants mentally transforming themselves into the orientation of an agent when trying to adopt his or her visuospatial perspective. Since false belief is propositional and not apparently linked to face orientation and point of view, we do not know if it also involves EET as visuospatial perspective does. In this experiment, participants completed a location false belief task that was presented by 3-D images. We manipulated the angle between agent and participants when the participants completed the false belief task. Event-related potential (ERP) technique was used to measure participants’ brain responses. Results showed a rotation-related negativity (RRN) at the parietal electrode sites between 300 and 700 ms. The potential’s mean amplitude was a function of the rotation angle. The results support that people might mentally transform themselves to the others’ positions to understand what others think. Thus, higher socio-cognitive processes that are propositional in nature (e.g., false belief reasoning), are may be also embodied, as stipulated by the embodied simulation theory.
