This study investigates whether viewing human gestures facilitates learning about non-human biological movements and whether correspondence between gesture and to-belearned movement is superior to non-correspondence. Functional near-infrared-spectroscopy was used to address whether gestures activate the human mirror-neuron-system (hMNS) and whether this… CONTINUE READING
