You may find my review useful for seeing what has been published in
the different disciplines referred to on the list:
Roth, W.-M. (2002). Gestures: Their role in teaching and learning.
Review of Educational Research, 71, 365392.

also, in
Roth, W.-M., & Lee, Y. J. (2004). Interpreting unfamiliar graphs: A
generative, activity-theoretic model. Educational Studies in
Mathematics, 57, 265290.

we cover mathematical cognition, gestures, and CHAT.
Hope this helps,

As for the latter, Ive recently been working with David McNeill and his

I could get more leads from the group...
