Sensorimotor training alters action understanding

Abstract:

The discovery of ‘mirror’ neurons stimulated intense interest in the role of motor processes in social interaction. A popular assumption is that observation-related motor activation, exemplified by mirror neurons’ matching properties, evolved to subserve the ‘understanding’ of others’ actions. Alternatively, such motor activation may result from sensorimotor learning. Sensorimotor training alters observation-related motor activation, but studies demonstrating training-dependent changes in mot...
