This week we finally finished discussion of the Rizzolatti & Craighero review, and we discussed the two early empirical papers on MNs: 1992 Di Pellegrino et al, and the 1996 Gallese et al. I'm still working on posting summaries from RC which I will hopefully finish by the end of the week. In the meantime, we will move on with a new reading set for next week:
Rizzolatti, Fogassi, & Gallese (2001). Neurophysiological mechanisms underlying the understanding and imitation of action. Nat. Rev. Neurosci. 2:661-70.
Kohler et al. (2002). Hearing sounds, understanding actions: action representation in mirror neurons. Science 297:846-48.
Fogassi et al. (2005). Parietal lobe: From action organization to intention understanding. Science. 308:662-7.
