Brain is a Copycat

A study shows that reading about an activity activates the same brain regions involved in performing that activity. For example, if you read a story about running, you would activate brains areas that are involved while you actually run. This finding confirms studies that found when people read about scoring a goal, they reacted quicker when asked to make a kicking motion than when told to pat their heads.
