When we observe others, a number of brain regions are involved in processing the observed actions of others, some of them belonging to the motor system, which is mainly involved in planning and carrying out movements. Research into these regions suggests that the same neurons are active during observation and execution. It has been proposed that these neurons, known as mirror neurons, allow the simulation of observed actions in a person's motor system. Judith Suttrup investigates this theory of motor simulation.
