 Abstract: This chapter discusses the contributions of functional imaging to our understanding of how action and tool concepts are represented and processed in the human brain. Section 7.1. introduces cognitive models of semantic organization. Section 7.2. provides a brief overview of functional imaging approaches to identify brain regions that have specialized for processing action and tool representations. Section 7.3. discusses the relationship between the visuomotor system and semantic processing of actions. Section 7.4. investigates the effects of action type and visual experience on action-selective responses. Section 7.5. characterizes the neural systems engaged in tool processing and how they are modulated by task and stimulus modality. Section 7.6. delineates future directions that may enable us to characterize the neural mechanisms that mediate tool and action-selective brain responses.
