Toward a microanalysis of imitative actions

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

We outline a view of imitative behaviour as largely internally driven and discuss, based on experimental research, the distinction between program Versus action level imitation, the role of organismic constraints, observational learning as vicarious exploration, and imitation as selection in speeded response paradigms.
