a report on asurprising set of neurons that we (Giuseppe Di Pellegrino,Luciano Fadiga, Leonardo Fogassi, Vittorio Gallese) hadfound in the ventral premotor cortex of the monkey. Thefundamental characteristic of these neurons was that theydischarged both when the monkey performed a certainmotor act (e.g., grasping an object) and when it observedanother individual (monkey or human) performing that or asimilar motor act (Di Pellegrino et al. 1992). These neuronsare now known as mirror neurons (Fig… Expand
