Scientific american is the essential guide to the cognition and that defects in the mirror neuron system may underlie a variety of mental disorders, such as autism neuroscience linking a. The mirror neuron system (mns) is a trimodal system composed of neuronal populations that respond to motor, visual, and auditory stimulation, such as when an action is performed, observed, heard or read about. The 'broken mirror' theory of autism has received considerable attention far beyond the scientific community this theory proposes that the varied social-cognitive difficulties characteristic of autism could be explained by dysfunction of the mirror neuron system, thought to play a role in imitation.
