    ..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...
  3. ncbi EEG evidence for mirror neuron dysfunction in autism spectrum disorders

    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...

    Lindsay 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...
