Observing other people in action reliably activates a network of regions across the human premotor, inferior parietal and middle temporal cortex (Caspers, Zilles, Laird, & Eickhoff, 2010). The frontal and parietal components of this network are widely believed to contain mirror neurons (Rizzolatti & Sinigaglia, 2010).
