Observation and Skill Learning

Observation and Skill Learning

About This Video

Mirror neurons help in skill acquisition by mere observation. That is, they allow us to learn skills simply by watching. It has also been shown that rehearsing or repeating an action is beneficial to skill learning. Dr. Giacomo Rizzolatti explains that the most effective way of learning a skill is to take advantage of both of watching and rehearsing. This is much more effective in skill acquisition than performing either method individually.
