Mirror Mechanisms Application in Neurorehabilitation

Mirror Mechanisms Application in Neurorehabilitation

About This Video

Dr. Giacomo Rizzolatti’s study shows that mirror neurons fire when the subject observes or performs a specific action and that it also activates the motor cortex simply by observation. Therefore, he explains that this activation of the mirror neuron system could serve as a treatment for patients with neurological disorders. He describes a study in which a mirror neuron based therapy was introduced for the treatment of patients with motor-deficits. He indicates that this therapeutic method plays a positive role in restoration of movements and emotion regulation.
