The results show that this 'mirror system' integrates observed actions of others with an individual's personal motor repertoire, and suggest that the human brain understands actions by motor simulation.
Functional anatomy of execution, mental simulation, observation, and verb generation of actions: A meta‐analysis
A meta‐analysis is evaluated in specific detail to what extent the activated foci elicited by these studies overlap and the concept of shared motor representations has been proposed.
Activations related to “mirror” and “canonical” neurones in the human brain: an fMRI study
Brain activity during observation of actions. Influence of action content and subject's strategy.
The pattern of brain activation during observation of actions is dependent both on the nature of the required executive processing and the type of the extrinsic properties of the action presented.

A PET Exploration of the Neural Mechanisms Involved in Reciprocal Imitation
Imitation is a natural mechanism involving perception-action coupling which plays a central role in the development of understanding that other people, like the self, are mental agents. PET was used…

Investigation of the neural network engaged by the perception of human movements using positron emission tomography found that meaningful and meaningless actions shared almost the same network when the aim of the perception was to imitate them later.
