Department of Psychology, University of Rome La Sapienza, Rome, Italy
PLoS ONE 6:e16855. 2011..It has been recently shown that processing negative polarity action-related sentences modulates neural activity of premotor and motor cortices...

- Virtual lesion of ventral premotor cortex impairs visual perception of biomechanically possible but not impossible actionsMatteo Candidi
Universita di Roma La Sapienza, Rome, Italy
Soc Neurosci 3:388-400. 2008..Thus, vPMc is crucial for discrimination of the goal of actions that can be actually performed suggesting that this area is involved in the visual processing of goal-directed actions...

Department of Psychology, University of Rome La Sapienza, Italy
Eur J Neurosci 32:677-83. 2010..These results indicate that the anticipatory mirroring of hand actions may be triggered by linguistic representations and not only by direct action observation...

Dipartimento di Psicologia, Alma Mater Studiorum, Universita di Bologna, I 40127 Bologna, Italy
Cereb Cortex 23:570-80. 2013..These findings support the active, compensatory, and predictive role of frontoparietal nodes of the AON in the perception and anticipatory simulation of implied actions...
- And yet they act together: interpersonal perception modulates visuo-motor interference and mutual adjustments during a joint-grasping taskLucia Maria Sacheli
Department of Psychology, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy
PLoS ONE 7:e50223. 2012..Our study expands current knowledge about on-line motor interactions by showing that visuo-motor interference effects, mutual motor adjustments and motor-learning mechanisms are influenced by social perception...
