This chapter evaluates some of the main issues related to automatic and strategic effect in human imitation. It aims to determine whether imitation is innate or is the outcome of a learning process, and whether it is uniquely human or is shared with other primates. It analyses the cerebral correlates of imitation of different action types and suggests that imitation of meaningful and meaningless actions is supported by common as well as by dedicated brain regions.

Abstract

This chapter evaluates some of the main issues related to automatic and strategic effect in human imitation. It aims to determine whether imitation is innate or is the outcome of a learning process, and whether it is uniquely human or is shared with other primates. It analyses the cerebral correlates of imitation of different action types and suggests that imitation of meaningful and meaningless actions is supported by common as well as by dedicated brain regions.
