Arévalo, A., Baldo, J., González-Perilli, F., Ibáñez, A. (2016). What Can We Make of Theories of Embodiment and the Role of the Human Mirror Neuron System? Lausanne: Frontiers Media. doi: 10.3389/978-2-88919-761-3. ISSN 1664-8714 (118 pp.)
Research on embodiment and/or the MNS has been approached with a number of different methodologies, but the results obtained with these different methodologies have not been entirely consistent, generating doubts regarding the theories. The question has been raised as to what this line of inquiry can gain from the types of evidence contributed by functional neuroimaging methods carried out with healthy volunteers versus behavioral or lesion-symptom mapping methods employed with neurologically-compromised individuals.
