Just wondering: I know that your mirror-neurons strengthen connections simply by watching someone perform an action. My question is, is muscle memory tied to mirror neurons? Or is this not yet known? Can you gain muscle memory simply by thinking about a certain motion, rather than actually performing it?? I have noticed that when I can actually visualize doing an action realistically and at a high speed, then I can actually perform the action better. Or maybe this is just my imagination? If not: then if you could somehow force your brain to make connections between the mirror neurons and and neurons responsible for movements of specific muscles, could you possible tie the two together?
