    We thank Corlett for his thought-provoking response [1] to our recent article [2]. Corlett shares our concerns about inconsistencies in theories of perceptual prediction and highlights some reminiscent debates in learning theory. He also proposes why the perceptual prediction mechanisms may operate differently in the domain of action relative to other sensory cognition. Here, we highlight how we share the conviction that dialogue across disciplines will inform both models of perception and learning, but clarify that important distinctions between the explananda mean the theoretical puzzles are not reducible to each other. We also question whether action prediction mechanisms do indeed operate differently.
