Action observation and mirror neuron
network: A tool for motor stroke rehabilitation.
(2014) Mirror Neuron
System and Mentalizing System connect during online social interaction.
Upon viewing another individual's actions, the mirror neuron
system in humans activates areas in the observer's brain that are associated with performing that action .

Those with more responsive mirror neuron
systems--essentially those who displayed more empathy--were more likely to bow to social pressure and comply with unethical requests, especially if they thought the manager would benefit.
Empathy in women is thus more emotional because of the greater strength and the higher number of mirror neurons
activated during the affective response process.
Moreover, according to Parsons (8), judging the handedness of a visually presented hand stimulus involves a pre-attentive handedness-recognition process followed by a mental simulation of one's own hand moving towards the stimulus, which may be related to mirror neuron
We found the need to analyze what type of demonstration could improve the capability of action observation of patients in order to provide a basis for rehabilitation and to allow a discussion about a possible impediment of the mirror neuron
Ramachandran suggests the development of mirror neurons
was most likely the cause of rapid advancement in cognitive awareness, skills, and technology.
research has encouraged the development of new motor rehabilitation approaches.
Using layman's terms, Rizzato and Donelli are able to break down mirror neurons
into easy-to-understand language.
