Contents Unifying Social Cognition -- Reflections on the Mirror Neuron System: Their Evolutionary Functions Beyond Motor Representation -- The Neurophysiology of Early Motor Resonance -- The Rational Continuum of Human Imitation -- From Embodied Representation to Co-Regulation -- The Problem of Other Minds Is Not a Problem: Mirror Neurons and Intersubjectivity -- Hierarchically Organized "(BMirroring" Processes in Social Cognition: The Functional Neuroanatomy of Empathy -- Mirror Neurons and the Neural Exploitation Hypothesis: From Embodied Simulation to Social Cognition -- From Imitation to Reciprocation and Mutual Recognition -- Automatic and Controlled Processing -- Embodied Perspective on Emotion-Cognition Interactions -- The Role of Mirror Neuron Dysfunction in Autism -- Synaesthesia for Pain: Feeling Pain with Another -- Mirroring, Mindreading, and Simulation -- Does the Mirror Neuron System and Its Impairment Explain Human Imitation and Autism?- Neural Simulation and Social Cognition
Summary The discovery of mirror neurons and of a mirror neuron system in the human brain raises the interesting possibility that 'mirroring' may constitute novel instances of mental simulation. This book discusses the relevance of mirroring neural systems in cognition
