Object visibility alters the relative contribution of ventral visual stream and mirror neuron system to goal anticipation during action observation

Marc Thioux, Christian Keysers
2015 NeuroImage  
Activity in the putative mirror neuron system (pMNS) was higher when the target was concealed from the view of the observer and anticipating the size of the object being grasped requested paying attention  ...  We used fMRI to study the effect of hiding the target of a grasping action on the cerebral activity of an observer whose task was to anticipate the size of the object being grasped.  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to Anita Kuiper for scanning the participants, to Inez Greven who helped pilot a first version of the experiment, as well as to Branislava Curcic and Valeria Gazzola for  ...

Acknowledgments Declaration of Conflicting Interests The authors declared that they had no conflicts of interest with respect to their authorship or the publication of this article.  ...  According to GH, both classes of neurons instantiate the action-oriented coding typical of the dorsal stream, whereas object and action semantics would be exclusively provided by the ventral stream.  ...  When the relative contribution of visual and motor experience in processing an observed action is investigated, the results reveal greater activation of the mirror mechanism when the observed actions are  ...

Do we have distinct systems for immediate and delayed actions? A selective review on the role of visual memory in action

Thomas Schenk, Constanze Hesse
2018 Cortex  
This distinction between a perceptual system concentrating on invariant features of objects and scenes and an action system taking account of observer-relative features allowed Goodale and his colleagues  ...  In order to plan and execute an action, the position of the observer (and now actor) to the object is a critical parameter that needs to be taken into account for a successful interaction with the object  ...  Acknowledgements Thomas Schenk was supported by grants from the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG, grant no's: DFG-SCHE 735/2-1 and DFG-SCHE 735/3-1).  ...

Confounding the origin and function of mirror neurons

Giacomo Rizzolatti
2014 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
The intriguing feature of many mirror neurons is that they fire not only when the animal is performing an action, such as grasping an object using a power grip, but also when the animal passively observes  ...  The evidence supporting this view shows that (1) mirror neurons do not consistently encode action "goals"; (2) the contingency-and context-sensitive nature of associative learning explains the full range  ...  We have argued, in another context, that the observed object category-specific organization in the visual ventral stream is driven primarily by distinct long-range connections to downstream processes  ...
