Mirror neurons:from origin to function

Article English OPEN
Cook, R; Bird, G; Catmur, C; Press, C; Heyes, C;

<p>This article argues that mirror neurons originate in sensorimotor associative learning and therefore a new approach is needed to investigate their functions. Mirror neurons were discovered about 20 years ago in the monkey brain, and there is now evidence that they ar... View more
