In this paper a cognitive agent model is presented that models multiple functions of preparation states: mirroring an observed action, imitation of an action, or imagining an action. The model incorporates a super mirroring function enabling the agent to keep track of the context of a mental process: mirroring another agent, imitation of another agent, action imagination, or own action performance. These cognitive functions have been adopted from informal descriptions of mirror neuron and super mirror neuron functions in neurological literature. Example simulations are presented that illustrate the model.
