Affordances based k-TR Common Coding Pathways for Mirror and Anti-Mirror Neuron System Models


The k-TR theory to visual perception is a recent psychophysical theory that explains the processing of visual perception in humans towards the goal of object detection, recognition, grasping and manipulation through the notion of functional and grasp affordances. In this work, we postulate a new Brain Operating Model based on the k-TR theory and supported by various neuro-biological studies to accompany the observed psychophysics. The key components of the model include the Mirror Neuron System (MNS) and the Anti-Mirror Neuron System (AMNS).
