Abstract

Our actions, and those of others, are often partly obscured from view. This complicates the sensory inputs that guide motor actions. In this issue of Neuron, Umilità and colleagues demonstrate that "mirror neurons" in ventral premotor cortex respond when monkeys observe hidden, but inferred, actions.
