Simultaneous scalp recorded EEG and local field potentials from monkey ventral premotor cortex during action observation and execution reveals the contribution of mirror and motor neurons to the mu-rhythm

Marco Bimbi, Fabrizia Festante, Gino Coudé, Ross E. Vanderwert, Nathan A. Fox, Pier Francesco Ferrari
2018 NeuroImage  
We simultaneously recorded scalp EEG and extracellular activity, Multi Unit Activity (MUA) and Local Field Potentials (LFP), from area F5 of two macaques executing and observing grasping actions.  ...  The desynchronization of alpha and beta oscillations (mu rhythm) in the central scalp EEG during action observation and action execution is thought to reflect neural mirroring processes.  ...  It shows that the activity of mirror and motor neurons recorded from the PMv contributes to the EEG mu rhythm desynchronization occurring over central scalp locations, during action execution and observation  ...

2016 Psychological bulletin  
These neurons fire to both execution and observation of specific types of actions.  ...  In recent years, a potential advance in our knowledge on this issue is the discovery of mirror neurons in the motor cortex of the nonhuman primate.  ...  Nonetheless, despite the lack of direct translation from monkey to human neurophysiology, fMRI research reveals brain regions in humans (including the ventral premotor cortex and inferior frontal gyrus  ...

Parieto-Frontal Circuits During Observation of Hidden and Visible Motor Acts in Children. A High-density EEG Source Imaging Study

Cristina Berchio, Tonia A. Rihs, Christoph M. Michel, Denis Brunet, Fabio Apicella, Filippo Muratori, Vittorio Gallese, Maria A. Umiltà
2013 Brain Topography  
Several studies showed that in the human brain specific premotor and parietal areas are activated during the execution and observation of motor acts.  ...  The activation of this premotor-parietal network displaying the so-called Mirror Mechanism (MM) was proposed to underpin basic forms of action understanding.  ...  The authors found that mu rhythm suppression occurring during action execution was also present during observation of the same action.  ...

Amplitude of Sensorimotor Mu Rhythm Is Correlated with BOLD from Multiple Brain Regions: A Simultaneous EEG-fMRI Study

Siyang Yin, Yuelu Liu, Mingzhou Ding
2016 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
The mu rhythm is a field oscillation in the ∼10Hz range over the sensorimotor cortex.  ...  First, mu power was negatively correlated with BOLD from areas of the sensorimotor network, the attention control network, the putative mirror neuron system, and the network thought to support theory of  ...  Mu Rhythm and the Mirror Neuron System Mirror neurons are a class of neurons that modulate their activity both when an individual executes a specific motor act and when they observe the same or similar  ...
