Action observation activates premotor and parietal areas in a somatotopic manner: an fMRI study.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to localize brain areas that were active during the observation of actions made by another individual. Object- and non-object-related actionsExpand
Action observation activates premotor and parietal areas in a somatotopic manner: an fMRI study
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to localize brain areas that were active during the observation of actions made by another individual. Object‐ and non‐object‐related actionsExpand
Listening to action-related sentences modulates the activity of the motor system: a combined TMS and behavioral study.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and a behavioral paradigm were used to assess whether listening to action-related sentences modulates the activity of the motor system. By means ofExpand
A fronto‐parietal circuit for object manipulation in man: evidence from an fMRI‐study
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to localize brain areas active during manipulation of complex objects. In one experiment subjects were required to manipulate complex objects forExpand
Human anterior intraparietal area subserves prehension
It has been shown in nonhuman primates that the posterior parietal cortex is involved in coordination of arm and eye movements in space, whereas the anterior intraparietal area in the anteriorExpand
Two action systems in the human brain
The distinction between dorsal and ventral visual processing streams, first proposed by Ungerleider and Mishkin (1982) and later refined by Milner and Goodale (1995) has been elaborated substantiallyExpand
The mirror neuron system and action recognition
Mirror neurons, first described in the rostral part of monkey ventral premotor cortex (area F5), discharge both when the animal performs a goal-directed hand action and when it observes anotherExpand
Broca's region subserves imagery of motion: A combined cytoarchitectonic and fMRI study
Broca's region in the dominant cerebral hemisphere is known to mediate the production of language but also contributes to comprehension. Here, we report the differential participation of Broca'sExpand
Activation of frontoparietal cortices during memorized triple‐step sequences of saccadic eye movements: an fMRI study
To determine the cortical areas controlling memory‐guided sequences of saccadic eye movements, we performed functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in six healthy adults. Subjects had to performExpand
A parieto-premotor network for object manipulation: evidence from neuroimaging
Abstract Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to assess cerebral activation during manipulation of various complex meaningless objects as compared to manipulation of a single simpleExpand
