"How do we understand the actions of other individualsif we can only hear them? Auditory mirror neurons re-spond both while monkeys perform hand or mouth ac-tions and while they listen to sounds of similar actions[1, 2]. This system might be critical for auditory actionunderstanding and language evolution[1–6]. Prelimi-nary evidence suggests that a similar system may ex-ist in humans[7–10]. Using fMRI, we searched for brainareas that respond both during motor execution andwhen individuals listened to the sound of an actionmade by the same effector. We show that a left hemi-spheric temporo-parieto-premotor circuit is activatedin both cases, providing evidence for a human audi-tory mirror system. In the left premotor cortex, a soma-totopic pattern of activation was also observed: Adorsal cluster was more involved during listeningand execution of hand actions, and a ventral clusterwas more involved during listening and execution ofmouth actions. Most of this system appears to be mul-timodal because it also responds to the sight of similaractions. Finally, individuals who scored higher on anempathy scale activated this system more strongly,adding evidence for a possible link between the motormirror system and empathy."
