VS Ramachandran on mirror neurons

Mirror neurons are the latest and perhaps most popular topic in neuroscience. What they are is a chemical activation in one neuron of an organism as it observes another doing the same or a similar chore. It is hard to accurately describe them in one paragraph since they have so many applications and there is still a lot of research being done on them. But if you could imagine such items as language, conversation, empathy and morality at work between two people then you can probably get a fair understanding of what’s going on.

In this video I have posted, VS Ramachandran talks about the vast implications of mirror neurons. Take a moment to check it out and post some feedback.
