Abstract: This paper describes our model of the emergence of a mirror system for imitative learning. The mirror system is an intermodal mapping between someone s action (as seen) and one s own action (to execute). It is widely assumed that the mapping is a geometric transformation between bodies in the visual and motor spaces; however, it is still unclear if the mapping is innate or, if not, how it is acquired. We claim here that the mapping is not a geometric transformation between bodies but a functional correspondence between someone s action on an object for producing an effect and one s own action on the same or similar object for producing a similar effect, which is learnable because both tend to utilize the object s affordance in a similar way.
