Neural Simulation of Action: A Unifying Mechanism for Motor Cognition
  • M. Jeannerod
  • Psychology, Computer Science
  • NeuroImage
  • 1 July 2001
The hypothesis that the motor system is part of a simulation network that is activated under a variety of conditions in relation to action, either self-intended or observed from other individuals, will be developed. Expand
The timing of natural prehension movements.

  • 1 September 1984
Prehension movements were studied by film in 7 adult subjects. Transportation of the hand to the target-object location had features very similar to any aiming arm movement, that is, it involved aExpand
The representing brain: Neural correlates of motor intention and imagery
This paper concerns how motor actions are neurally represented and coded. Action planning and motor preparation can be studied using a specific type of representational activity, motor imagery. AExpand

  • 6 March 1997
This chapter discusses the contribution of Mental Imagery to Understanding Motor Representations to Action Planning, and the role of Posterior Parietal Lesions on Object-Oriented Actions. Expand
Grasping objects: the cortical mechanisms of visuomotor transformation
In humans, neuropsychological studies of patients with lesions to the parietal lobule confirm that primitive shape characteristics of an object for grasping are analyzed in theParietal lobe, and also demonstrate that this 'pragmatic' analysis of objects is separated from the 'semantic' analysis performed in the temporal lobe. Expand
Modulating the experience of agency: a positron emission tomography study
It is demonstrated that the level of activity of specific brain areas maps onto the experience of causing or controlling an action, particularly in the inferior part of the parietal lobe. Expand
The neural and behavioural organization of goal-directed movements
An investigation of a subject at the boundaries of psychology and physiology. The author's account is based upon experimental data from human and animal work with particular emphasis on illustrativeExpand
Mental imagery in the motor context

  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Neuropsychologia
  • 1 November 1995
It is proposed that motor images are endowed with the same properties as those of the (corresponding) motor representations, and therefore have the same functional relationship to the imagined or represented movement and the same causal role in the generation of this movement. Expand
Defective recognition of one's own actions in patients with schizophrenia.
The findings support the hypothesis that delusions of influence are associated with a quantifiable difficulty in correct self-attribution of actions and may be related to a specific impairment of a neural action attribution system. Expand
