The role of social cognition in emotion
Towards a unifying neural theory of social cognition.
The neural bases of empathic accuracy
TLDR
It is found that empathically accurate, as compared with inaccurate, judgments depended on structures within the human mirror neuron system thought to be involved in shared sensorimotor representations, and regions implicated in mental state attribution, the superior temporal sulcus and medial prefrontal cortex.
The motor theory of social cognition: a critique
The role of the body in social cognition.
TLDR
This review discusses the actual and active dependence of social cognitive processes on the body, i.e., that part of the organism beyond the central nervous system, and assesses the extent to which the body is recruited during these processes.
The neurobiology of mentalizing.
TLDR
The key assumptions of the mentalizing approach to normal and disrupted development are summarized and the multiple dimensions of mentalizing are discussed and the authors' emerging knowledge of the neural circuits that underlie these dimensions are discussed.
Neural Basis of Theory of Mind
The authors summarized the concept and neural basis of theory of mind from neuroimaging and neuropsychology researches,especially the prefrontal cortex,superior temporal sulcus and amygdale.The three
The mirror mechanism: a basic principle of brain function
The mirror mechanism is a basic brain mechanism that transforms sensory representations of others' behaviour into one's own motor or visceromotor representations concerning that behaviour. According

Neurophysiological mechanisms underlying the understanding and imitation of action
TLDR
Evidence for the existence of a system, the 'mirror system', that seems to serve this mapping function in primates and humans is discussed, and its implications for the understanding and imitation of action are explored.
Motor cognition: a new paradigm to study self–other interactions
Neural mechanisms of empathy in humans: A relay from neural systems for imitation to limbic areas
TLDR
There was greater activity during imitation, compared with observation of emotions, in premotor areas including the inferior frontal cortex, as well as in the superior temporal cortex, insula, and amygdala, which may be a critical relay from action representation to emotion.
The mirror-neuron system.
TLDR
A neurophysiological mechanism appears to play a fundamental role in both action understanding and imitation, and those properties specific to the human mirror-neuron system that might explain the human capacity to learn by imitation are stressed.

TLDR
Recent neurophysiological and brain imaging data on monkeys and humans are discussed, showing that the 'like me' analogy may rest upon a series of 'mirror-matching' mechanisms.

TLDR
Functional anatomical work has detailed an afferent neural system in primates and in humans that represents all aspects of the physiological condition of the physical body that might provide a foundation for subjective feelings, emotion and self-awareness.
