Action recognition in the premotor cortex.
We recorded electrical activity from 532 neurons in the rostral part of inferior area 6 (area F5) of two macaque monkeys. Previous data had shown that neurons of this area discharge duringExpand
Premotor cortex and the recognition of motor actions.
In area F5 of the monkey premotor cortex there are neurons that discharge both when the monkey performs an action and when he observes a similar action made by another monkey or by the experimenter.Expand
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
Motor facilitation during action observation: a magnetic stimulation study.
1. We stimulated the motor cortex of normal subjects (transcranial magnetic stimulation) while they 1) observed an experimenter grasping 3D-objects, 2) looked at the same 3D-objects, 3) observed anExpand
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
Localization of grasp representations in humans by PET: 1. Observation versus execution
Positron emission tomography (PET) was used to localize brain regions that are active during the observation of grasping movements. Normal, right-handed subjects were tested under three conditions.Expand
Understanding motor events: a neurophysiological study
SummaryNeurons of the rostral part of inferior premotor cortex of the monkey discharge during goal-directed hand movements such as grasping, holding, and tearing. We report here that many of theseExpand
I Know What You Are Doing A Neurophysiological Study
In the ventral premotor cortex of the macaque monkey, there are neurons that discharge both during the execution of hand actions and during the observation of the same actions made by others (mirrorExpand
Coding of peripersonal space in inferior premotor cortex (area F4).
1. We studied the functional properties of neurons in the caudal part of inferior area 6 (area F4) in awake monkeys. In agreement with previous reports, we found that the large majority (87%) ofExpand
Localization of grasp representations in humans by positron emission tomography
Positron emission tomography imaging of cerebral blood flow was used to localize brain areas involved in the representation of hand grasping movements. Seven normal subjects were scanned under threeExpand
