Description: We investigated the neural correlates of action observation and imitation in the human brain, based on 139 functional imaging studies. For both types of task, bilateral networks were found. These did not only involve classic mirror neuron areas such as inferior frontal and inferior parietal cortex, but also dorsal premotor, superior parietal, posterior superior temporal and extrastriate visual areas. Additional analyses revealed the influence of effector used during the action, the instruction given to the subjects, and the involvement of objects during the action.
