Brain Patterns The Same Whether Doing Or Just Watching, Queen's Researcher Discovers, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: New findings from a Queen's behavioural expert in eye/hand movement provide the first direct evidence that our brain patterns are similar whether we are actually doing something or simply watching someone else do it.It's an insight that could have significant implications for the assessment of people with various movement disorders such as some stroke victims, says (...). "We perceive an action by running it at some covert level in our own system. An example would be when sports fans watch football on TV and move in anticipation of action on the screen."
