Imitation is seen by many researchers as a driving force behind human evolutions and a primary factor controlling the development of culture. Imitation allows you to learn to ride a bike and to stay in line at the supermarket. Copying behaviour displayed by others may seem simple at first glance but is actually quite complex. Take a baby who copies its mother smiling: how does it know what muscles to use based on just the visual effects of the other person’s behaviour, seen from a mirror perspective? Tim Faber investigates this problem, known as the correspondence problem.
