Theory theory says children collect evidence -- inrepparttar form of gestures and expressions -- and use their everyday understanding of people to develop theories that explain and predictrepparttar 148957 mental state of people they come in contact with.

Simulation theory states that we place ourselves in another person's "mental shoes", and use our own mind as a model for theirs.

Butrepparttar 148958 two theories are not mutually exclusive. Ifrepparttar 148959 mirror neuron system is defective or damaged, and our ability to empathise is lost,repparttar 148960 observe-and-guess method of theory theory may berepparttar 148961 only option left. Some scientists suspect this is what happens in autistic people, whose mental disorder prevents them from understandingrepparttar 148962 intentions and motives of others.

The idea is thatrepparttar 148963 mirror neuron systems of autistic individuals are somehow deficient, and thatrepparttar 148964 resulting "mind-blindness" prevents them from simulatingrepparttar 148965 experiences of others. For them, experience is more observed than lived, andrepparttar 148966 emotional undercurrents that govern so much of our behaviour are inaccessible. They guessrepparttar 148967 mental states of others through explicit theorising, butrepparttar 148968 end result is a list of actions, gestures and expressions void of motive, intent, or emotion.

One recent experiment by Hugo Theoret and colleagues atrepparttar 148969 University of Montreal showed that mirror neurons normally active duringrepparttar 148970 observation of hand movements in non-autistic individuals are silent in those who have autism.
