Blow your mind in the seven minutes and forty-four seconds:
You just watched V.S. Ramachandran, Director for the Center of Brain and Cognition at the University of California Sand Diego, cross the mind/brain barrier in his description of mirror neurons. These neurons, a subset of the command neurons in the frontal cortex, are the neurobiological basis for imitation, culture and empathy. What we see another do or feel causes mirror neurons in our own brains to fire, so that we understand or feel the same.
This week's blogpost is published late because I kept trying to explain what mirror neurons explain. They explain everything.
