Jun 21, 2006 If true, the human mirror neuron system might also be left lateralized. In their Journal of Neuroscience article, AzizZadeh et al. (2006) used functional magnetic resonance imaging to determine the extent to which the human mirror neuron system is lateralized.Sensitivity of the human mirror neuron system for abstract traces of actions: The right lateralization is in line with SbrisciaFioretti et al. This is the first study demonstrating that the human mirror neuron system is truly responsive to action traces, and that this responsiveness is clearly distinguishable from mere effects of lateralization of the human mirror neuron system
Mirror neuron system. The involvement of mirror neuron system (MNS) is implicated in neurocognitive functions (social cognition, language, empathy, theory of mind) and neuropsychiatric disorders. MNS discovery is considered to be the most important landmark in neuroscience research during the
As mirror neurons are characterized by their response to both observation and execution of the same action, the human ability to imitate has been proposed to have evolved from the mirror neuron system in monkeys (Arbib, 2005). Lateralization of the Human Mirror Neuron System Article (PDF Available) in The Journal of Neuroscience: The Official Journal of the Society for Neuroscience 26(11): April 2006 with 107 lateralization of the human mirror neuron system Abstract. The mirror neuron system (MNS) is a trimodal system composed of neuronal populations that respond to motor, visual, and auditory stimulation, such as when an action is performed, observed, heard or read about. In humans, the MNS has been identified using neuroimaging techniques (such as fMRI and mu suppression in the EEG).
How can the answer be improved? lateralization of the human mirror neuron system The human mirror neuron system: A link between action observation and social skills Lindsay M. Oberman, 1, 2 Jaime A. Pineda, 3, 4 and Vilayanur S. Ramachandran1, 2, 3 1Center for Brain and Cognition, 2Department of Psychology, 3Department of Neurosciences, and 4Department of Cognitive Science, UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA in particular, those properties specic to the human mirrorneuron system that might explain the human capacity to learn by imitation. We conclude by discussing the relationship between the mirrorneuron system and language. INTRODUCTION Mirror neurons are a particular class of visuomotor neurons, originally discovered Mar 15, 2006 To conclude, these data suggest that the human frontoparietal mirror neuron system is bilaterally distributed in its activity.
