Social bonds are vital for well-being. Formation of these bonds involve reciprocal processes such as mimicry, that are active from infancy. In our work, we explore how mimicry is modulated by, and in turn, modulates reward. These bidirectional links between mimicry and reward offer an insight into the mechanism of social bonds, and how these are affected in autism.
