Our response to Nicosia’s Geography and Neuroscience. A New Representation of Cerebral Territories consists in focusing on the convergence between geography and the whole embodied cognitive science approach. We start by giving a naturalistic hint about the practice of mapping, because we believe that this could provide a fruitful and common ground of investigation. This will be followed by the analysis of some shared aspects between the 4E cognition paradigm and the post-representationalist theory in geographical research. Lastly, we briefly deal with the relationship between digital maps and users, showing how this relation redraws their respective roles and functions.
