OBJECTIVE To compare lateralized cerebral activations elicited during self-initiated movement mirroring and observation of movements. SUBJECTS A total of 15 right-handed healthy subjects, age range 22-56 years. METHODS Functional imaging study comparing movement mirroring with movement observation, in both hands, in an otherwise identical setting. Imaging data were analysed using statistical parametric mapping software, with significance threshold set at p < 0.01 (false discovery rate) and… Expand
Different effects of the mirror illusion on motor and somatosensory processing.
TLDR
The mirror illusion does not elicit immediate changes in motor areas, yet there is a direct effect on somatosensory areas, especially for left hand movements, which suggest different effects of mirror therapy on processing and rehabilitation of motor and sensory function. Expand
Parietal Activation Associated With Target-Directed Right Hand Movement Is Lateralized by Mirror Feedback to the Ipsilateral Hemisphere
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to investigate the interaction of target directed movement and MVF on the activation of, and functional connectivity between, regions within the visuomotor network and revealed that the interaction between the ipsilateral parietal lobe and the motor cortex was significantly greater during target-directed movements with mirror feedback compared to veridical feedback. Expand
Reflections on Mirror Therapy
TLDR
MVF can exert a strong influence on the motor network, mainly through increased cognitive penetration in action control, though the variance in methodology and the lack of studies that shed light on the functional connectivity between areas still limit insight into the actual underlying mechanisms. Expand
Role of kinaesthetic motor imagery in mirror-induced visual illusion as intervention in post-stroke rehabilitation
TLDR
Evidence based on brain imaging studies for testing the hypothesis that neural processes associated with kinaesthetic motor imagery are attributed to ipsilateral M1 activation is reviewed, relationships in terms of shared neural substrates and mental processes between mirror-induced visual illusion and kinaesthesia generate new evidence on the role of the latter in mirror therapy. Expand
Effect of a mirror-like illusion on activation in the precuneus assessed with functional near-infrared spectroscopy
TLDR
Findings extend the understanding on interhemispheric rivalry and indicate that a MIR is integrated into visuomotor coordination similar to normal view, irrespective of the hand that is actually performing the task. Expand
The Effects of Mirror Feedback during Target Directed Movements on Ipsilateral Corticospinal Excitability
TLDR
The hypothesis that movements directed toward visual targets may enhance MVF modulation of motor cortex (M1) excitability ipsilateral to the trained hand compared to movements without visual targets is investigated. Expand
Potential determinants of efficacy of mirror therapy in stroke patients – A pilot study
TLDR
Initial motor function was confirmed as crucial determinant of motor recovery and activity response to the mirror illusion in both precunei was found to be a candidate for determination of the efficacy of MT. Expand
Visual feedback therapy for restoration of upper limb function of stroke patients
TLDR
VFT based on mirror neuron theory is an effective approach to improve upper extremity motor function and daily activity performance of stroke patients and promotes sensory-motor plasticity and behavioral changes in both the motor and sensory domains. Expand

Mirror visual feedback (MVF) has been shown to increase the excitability of the primary motor cortex (M1) during asynchronous bimanual movement. However, the functional networks underlying thisExpand
Exploring Hemodynamic Responses Using Mirror Visual Feedback With Electromyogram-Triggered Stimulation and Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy
TLDR
The findings suggested that observation of movements through the mirror caused activation of the postcentral gyrus rather than the PrG, and MVF along with ETES decreased cortical activation. Expand

Mirror-induced visual illusion of hand movements: a functional magnetic resonance imaging study.
TLDR
2 areas uniquely associated with the mirror-induced visual illusion of hand movements are found: the right STG and the right superior occipital gyrus, a higher-order visual region involved in the analysis of biological stimuli and activated by observation of biological motion. Expand
Representation of virtual arm movements in precuneus
TLDR
The prominent role of the precuneus for mediating visuo-motor transformations is demonstrated and have implications for the use of mirror therapy and virtual reality techniques, especially avatars, such as Nintendo Wii in neurorehabilitation. Expand
Lateralization of the Human Mirror Neuron System
TLDR
The data indicate that visual and motor components of the human mirror system are not left-lateralized, and the left hemisphere superiority for language must be have been favored by other types of language precursors, perhaps auditory or multimodal action representations. Expand
Modulating cortical connectivity in stroke patients by rTMS assessed with fMRI and dynamic causal modeling
TLDR
Connectivity analyses suggest that both a reduction of pathological transcallosal influences (originating from contralesional M1) and a restitution of ipsilesional effective connectivity between SMA and M1 underlie improved motor performance. Expand
The shape of motor resonance: Right- or left-handed?
TLDR
It is hypothesized that since motor resonance reproduces subliminally the specific motor program for the observed action, it should be subject to motor constraints, such as handedness, and revealed that handedness determines a lateralized activation of the areas engaged in motor resonance. Expand
Visuomotor control within a distributed parieto-frontal network
TLDR
A gradual transition of visuomotor control with increasing task complexity within a distributed parietofrontal network is confirmed, which bridges human activation studies with the results of neurophysiological studies with monkeys. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that in humans there is a system matching action observation and execution that resembles the one recently described in the monkey. Expand
Action observation has a positive impact on rehabilitation of motor deficits after stroke
TLDR
The results provide pieces of evidence that action observation has a positive additional impact on recovery of motor functions after stroke by reactivation of motor areas, which contain the action observation/action execution matching system. Expand
