Recognizing body movements of another person is a fundamental socio-cognitive skill which involves perceiving and adequately interpreting a number of cues from different sensory domains. One of them is visual motion. We can recognize various body movements such as instrumental and social actions when shown only a point-light display (biological motion). The term 'biological motion' refers to displays that consist of a number of small bright dots attached to the principal joints of a person's body (Johansson, 1973). In this article, we reviewed what brain regions are involved in visual processes of biological motion, based on recent neuroimaging studies.
