|Title:||I Am You and You Are Me; Your Brain, is My Brain: A Review of Human Mirror System Functions, Properties, and Implications|
|Abstract:||Mirror neuron functioning in humans has been theorized to participate in a variety of high order social and cognitive skills, including imitation, empathy, and intention understanding. Recent literature suggests plasticity in this mirror system, and the ability to increase motoric and empathetic understanding of another, through increasingly compatible motor repertoires. Future research in this area, paired with recent breakthroughs in dyadic, brain-‐to-‐brain interface (BTBI) in animals, may suggest the future possibility of direct, intracortical communication of behaviorally relevant information Keywords: mirror (neuron) system, sensorimotor, motor repertoire, mirror functions|
