Can I use my iMac via airplay?

My iMac is in my spare room and I have an Apple TV in my living room. I know I can mirror my mac through the Apple TV, but can I control it through the Apple TV and essentially use my iMac through mirroring in the living room?

As far as I know, AirPlay is a one-way transfer of data. However, if your Apple TV is mirroring the screen, you may still be able to control the iMac in a different room using a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard - you could even have a duplicate set paired with the Mac. This would depend on the ability of any walls or ceilings between rooms to allow the Bluetooth signal through.
