Prefrontal involvement in imitation learning of hand actions: Effects of practice and expertise
The effects of a single session of practising configural hand actions (guitar chords) on cortical activations during observation, motor preparation and imitative execution demonstrate a strong role of the MNS in the early stages of imitation learning. Expand
Activity in right temporo-parietal junction is not selective for theory-of-mind.
Functional neuroimaging was used to examine the extent to which cortical loci identified by a "theory-of-mind localizer" also distinguish between trials on a target detection task that varied demands to reorient attention, and results were incompatible with claims of RTPJ selectivity for mental state attribution. Expand
Grasping the Intentions of Others with One's Own Mirror Neuron System
Functional magnetic resonance imaging revealed that premotor mirror neuron areas—areas active during the execution and the observation of an action—previously thought to be involved only in action recognition are actually also involved in understanding the intentions of others. Expand
Aplasics Born without Hands Mirror the Goal of Hand Actions with Their Feet
The BOLD signal of aplasic individuals within the putative MNS was augmented when they watched hand actions, demonstrating the brain's capacity to mirror actions that deviate from the embodiment of the observer by recruiting voxels involved in the execution of actions that achieve corresponding goals by different effectors. Expand
Seeing or Doing? Influence of Visual and Motor Familiarity in Action Observation
The first neuroimaging study to distinguish whether this "mirror system" uses specialized motor representations or general processes of visual inference and knowledge to understand observed actions is reported, showing that mirror circuits have a purely motor response over and above visual representations of action. Expand
Observing Others: Multiple Action Representation in the Frontal Lobe
Investigation of whether other monkey frontal areas respond to actions performed by others activates monkey ventral premotor cortex, where action meaning, but not object identity, is coded. Expand
Neural Circuits Underlying Imitation Learning of Hand Actions An Event-Related fMRI Study
The results showed that the basic circuit underlying imitation learning consists of the inferior parietal lobule and the posterior part of the superior frontal gyrus plus the adjacent premotor cortex (mirror neuron circuit), plus structures involved in motor preparation (dorsal prem motor cortex, superior parietal lobe, rostral mesial areas). Expand
Action recognition in the premotor cortex.
It is proposed that mirror neurons form a system for matching observation and execution of motor actions, similar to that of mirror neurons exists in humans and could be involved in recognition of actions as well as phonetic gestures. Expand
Viewing the motion of human body parts activates different regions of premotor, temporal, and parietal cortex
The data indicate that there are selective responses to viewing motion of different body parts in the human brain that are independent of object or tool use. Expand
Action observation activates premotor and parietal areas in a somatotopic manner: an fMRI study
Results bring the previous concept of an action observation/execution matching system (mirror system) into a broader perspective: this system is not restricted to the ventral premotor cortex, but involves several somatotopically organized motor circuits. Expand
