Grasping the Intentions of Others with One's Own Mirror Neuron System
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging revealed that premotor mirror neuron areas—areas active during the execution and the observation of an action—previously thought to be involved only in action recognition are actually also involved in understanding the intentions of others.
Action observation activates premotor and parietal areas in a somatotopic manner: an fMRI study
TLDR
Results bring the previous concept of an action observation/execution matching system (mirror system) into a broader perspective: this system is not restricted to the ventral premotor cortex, but involves several somatotopically organized motor circuits.

Listening to Action-related Sentences Activates Fronto-parietal Motor Circuits
TLDR
The results showed that listening to action-related sentences activates a left fronto-parieto-temporal network that includes the pars opercularis of the inferior frontal gyrus (Broca's area), as well as the inferior parietal lobule, the intraparietal sulcus, and the posterior middle temporal gyrus.
Neural Circuits Involved in the Recognition of Actions Performed by Nonconspecifics: An fMRI Study
TLDR
Assessment of cortical areas active during the observation of mouth actions performed by humans and by individuals belonging to other species suggests that actions made by other individuals may be recognized through different mechanisms.
A fronto‐parietal circuit for object manipulation in man: evidence from an fMRI‐study
TLDR
It is suggested that a fronto‐parietal circuit for manipulation of objects exists in humans and involves basically the same areas as in the monkey and it is proposed that area SII analyses the intrinsic object characteristics whilst the superior parietal lobule is related to kinaesthesia.
Speech listening specifically modulates the excitability of tongue muscles: a TMS study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, during speech listening, there is an increase of motor‐evoked potentials recorded from the listeners' tongue muscles when the presented words strongly involve, when pronounced, tongue movements.
