Disabilità visiva e neuroni specchio: processi di apprendimento nello sviluppo atipico

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


[automatically translated] The study, occur: 1) that the encoding mode among the blind subjects (acquired) and blind (congenital) follows the different neuronal circuits, but still involving the mirror neuron system; 2) that the activity of mirror neurons is not bound to only sensory input of the vision of a simple movement, but a real "vocabulary of acts" that the subject recognizes as having meaning and belonging to its experience especially in the case an acquired visual impairment (largest and richest is this vocabulary of acts, the more the subject is able to learn); 3) that understand the actual meaning of a sentence, of a sound that expresses an action certainly involves the activation of those same neural circuits involved during the actual execution of the same action,
