PDF - Doctoral Thesis


In daily life, we constantly observe actions of other people and try to attribute a meaning to these actions. This ability is fundamental to our survivor. Despite intense research, the neural basis of action understanding is still poorly understood. The aim of the present thesis is to investigate the neural networks involved in the process of action understanding in humans using functional magnetic resonance and diffusion tensor imaging (fMRI and DTI).
