Motor-visual neurons and action recognition in social interactions

Abstract

Cook et al. suggest that motor-visual neurons originate from associative learning. This suggestion has interesting implications for the processing of socially relevant visual information in social interactions. Here, we discuss two aspects of the associative learning account that seem to have particular relevance for visual recognition of social information in social interactionsÂ-Â namely, context-specific and contingency based learning.
