Background: Social comparison feedback and activity of mirror neurons are both associated with stimulating an individual's emotions, and as each of them suggests a different type of stimulation of emotion to improve performance.
Objective: The research aimed to investigate the effect of comparative-social video feedback on the activity of mirror neurons in the brain.
Methods: There were randomly selected 18 non-athlete females from Al-Zahra University and they were randomly classified in positive, negative and real groups. On the first day, there was taught how to pay pat golf and a 6-stroke impact test (pretest); the second day consisted of 60 beats with five minutes break between the attempts and receiving video feedback tailored to the group after each attempt (acquisition session); and on the third day, there were performed six attempts (retention test). Using EEG sensors, there was the recorded activity of brain mirror neurons in three conditions: basic, execution and observation. There was also recorded data of accuracy of kicks.
Results: The results of combined variance analysis did not show the effect of social comparison feedback on learning accuracy; however, in registering brain activity, there was a significant difference between the activity of mirror neurons in execution and observation conditions. There was no significant difference between the three groups in the amount of electrical activity in the brain during execution and observation.
Conclusion: This feedback seems to have little effect on the activity of mirror neurons.
