Brain monitoring of errors in one’s own and other’s actions is crucial for a variety of processes, ranging from the fine-tuning of motor skill learning to important social functions, such as reading out and anticipating the intentions of others. Here, we combined immersive
virtual reality and EEG recording to explore whether embodying the errors of an avatar by seeing it from a first-person perspective may
activate the error monitoring system in the brain of an onlooker. We asked healthy participants to observe, from a first- or third-person
perspective, an avatar performing a correct or an incorrect reach-to-grasp movement toward one of two virtual mugs placed on a table. At
the end of each trial, participants reported verbally how much they embodied the avatar’s arm.
