Neurophysiological and behavioural research has linked observational practice to a 2 mirroring mechanism encompassing the action-observation network (AON). Although the 3 original findings indicate that biological stimuli alone activate the AON, recent evidence 4 has shown sensitivity to non-biological stimuli. Thus, the AON is suggested to be 5 influenced by interacting bottom-up and top-down processes. In this review, we describe 6 the multi-functional properties of the AON, and discuss the implications for observational 7 practice and subsequent motor learning.
