This chapter examines the extent to which action-mirroring phenomena can be explained in terms of very simple associative processes. It locates the associative accounts of motoric mirror phenomena among other ‘mirror theories’ and proposes an associative hypothesis called the associative sequence learning (ASL) model. It discusses the potential extension of the ASL model to cover non-motoric mirror phenomena and identifies the effects that appear to be beyond its explanatory reach.
