- Broken mirrors: a theory of autismVilayanur S Ramachandran
Center for Brain and Congnition, University of California, San Diego, USA
Sci Am 295:62-9. 2006
- Modulation of mu suppression in children with autism spectrum disorders in response to familiar or unfamiliar stimuli: the mirror neuron hypothesisLindsay M Oberman
Center for Brain and Cognition, UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0109, United States
Neuropsychologia 46:1558-65. 2008..These findings suggest that the MNS responds to observed actions in individuals with ASD, but only when individuals can identify in some personal way with the stimuli...
- EEG evidence for mirror neuron dysfunction in autism spectrum disordersLindsay M Oberman
Center for Brain and Cognition, UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0109, USA
Brain Res Cogn Brain Res 24:190-8. 2005..The ASD group showed significant mu suppression to self-performed hand movements but not to observed hand movements. These results support the hypothesis of a dysfunctional mirror neuron system in high-functioning individuals with ASD...
- Face to face: blocking facial mimicry can selectively impair recognition of emotional expressionsLindsay M Oberman
University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California, USA
Soc Neurosci 2:167-78. 2007..These findings suggest that facial mimicry differentially contributes to recognition of specific facial expressions, thus allowing for more refined predictions from embodied cognition theories...
- Preliminary evidence for deficits in multisensory integration in autism spectrum disorders: the mirror neuron hypothesisLindsay M Oberman
University of California at San Diego, La Jolla, California, USA
Soc Neurosci 3:348-55. 2008....
- The human mirror neuron system: a link between action observation and social skillsLindsay M Oberman
Center for Brain and Cognition, Department of Psychology, University of California San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla, CA 92093 0515, USA
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 2:62-6. 2007..These data suggest that the human MNS is specialized not only for processing animate stimuli, but specifically stimuli with social relevance...
- The simulating social mind: the role of the mirror neuron system and simulation in the social and communicative deficits of autism spectrum disordersLindsay M Oberman
Center for Brain and Cognition, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA
Psychol Bull 133:310-27. 2007..Additionally, the authors suggest that dysfunctional simulation mechanisms may underlie the social and communicative deficits seen in individuals with autism spectrum disorders...
- Slow echo: facial EMG evidence for the delay of spontaneous, but not voluntary, emotional mimicry in children with autism spectrum disordersLindsay M Oberman
Center for Brain and Cognition, UC San Diego, USA
Dev Sci 12:510-20. 2009..This delay occurred across different expressions and presentation durations. We relate these findings to the literature on mirroring and temporal dynamics of social interaction...
- What goads cigarette smokers to smoke? Neural adaptation and the mirror neuron systemJaime Owner A Pineda
Department of Cognitive Science, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA
Brain Res 1121:128-35. 2006..Such adaptations may inappropriately bias attention toward motivationally salient, addiction-related cues leading to more impulsive and addiction-related behaviors...
