Aim: mirror neurons are present in many areas of human and monkey brain. They are considered as the common substrate for action and perception. These neurons seem also to predict the goal of the observed action as if they had an internal representation of what is going on. To verify if a conditioned visuo-motor task my create in monkey's brain a mental representation, we recorded premotor neurons of a macaque monkey' frontal cortex.
