Coordinate systems and the brain

Last week I attended a lecture by neuroscientist Vittorio Gallese entitled “What is so special with embodied simulation”. Among other things, I was really surprised to learn that the brain encodes positions of objects in space using egocentric as well as allocentric coordinate systems. Is that the neurological argument why SpatDIF supports more than just one coordinate system?
