Hominin infant decentration hypothesis: Mirror neurons system adapted to subserve mother-centered participation

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):508-509 (2004)
Falk's hominin mother-infant model presupposes an emerging infant capacity to perceive and learn from afforded gestures and vocalizations. Unlike back-riding offspring of other primates, who were in no need to decenter their own body-centered perspective, a mirror neurons system may have been adapted in hominin infants to subserve the kind of (m)other-centered mirroring we now see manifested by human infants soon after birth.
