Motor cognition : a new paradigm to study self–other interactions

Authors: Jackson, Philip L.; Decety, Jean
Abstract: Accumulative empirical evidence has been reviewed in support of the notion that the production and perception of action as well as the interpretation of others’ actions are functionally connected, and indeed, rely on common distributed neural systems in the premotor and parietal cortices. We suggest that these neural systems sustain shared representations between self and other that are crucial in social interactions. The inferior parietal cortex plays a special role in the sense of agency, which is a fundamental aspect to navigate within this neural network. The role of other brain areas that implement and regulate these shared representations remains to be specified.
