Mirror Neurons and Autism


According to Wikipedia, “A mirror neuron is a neuron that fires both when an animal acts and when the animal observes the same action performed by another.”  A new study published in Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics on January 2016 reported that individuals with autism who imitate another through imitation – and synchronization-based dance/movement intervention (SI-DMI) can be successful in promoting emotion inference in individuals with ASD. This new study will be sure to lead to more research on the impact of mirror neurons on individuals with autism and future interventions.
