`Disembodied' theories account for intentionality relatively well: they posit cognitive representations which stand for real-world entities even in their absence (or inexistence).

Embodied cognition has a harder time explaining off-line cognition, ie. cognition about things that don't stimulate the senses.

Mental simulation, ie. simulation of sensorimotor interaction, is one way in which embodied cognitive theories can account for offline cognition.
