Viewing the behavior of other agents to infer and understand their intents recruits brain regions within the mirror neuron system (MNS), particularly the inferior parietal lobule and inferior frontal gyrus. However, decoding when intention understanding occurs in the human brain remains unclear. Accordingly, and to distinguish MNS involvement from lower level visual scene analysis, we tested repetition suppression effects in 24 healthy male volunteers who performed an intention inference task… CONTINUE READING
