Cognition is rooted in the body according to embodied cognition view. Research within this approach has studied the body primarily under the scope of motricity (e.g. effect of gesture, posture). Studies in the field of psycho- physiology have investigated the role of physiological variables in the functioning of the central nervous system without proposing an "embodied" reading. Bridges between these fields could be built through an integrative approach of these data within an embodied epistemic framework. This article thus proposes an integrative interpretation of the psycho-physiological mechanisms involved in the self-regulation of the cognitive system during interaction with the environment (i.e. autopoiesis). The main originality of this proposal is to defend epigenetics as a bodily memory that would be one of the main drivers of this self-regulation because of its influence on physiology following the interaction with the environment and the possible repercussion of this influence on the cognitive system.
