The emergence of mirror-like response properties from domain-general principles in vision and audition
Saygin, A.P. and Dick, Frederic (2014) The emergence of mirror-like response properties from domain-general principles in vision and audition. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 37 (02), p. 219. ISSN 0140-525X.
Like Cook et al., we suggest that mirror neurons are a fascinating product of cross-modal learning. As predicted by an associative account, responses in motor regions are observed for novel and/or abstract visual stimuli such as point-light and android movements. Domain-specific mirror responses also emerge as a function of audiomotor expertise that is slowly acquired over years of intensive training.
