      Interesting reading. I had read a bit on mirror neurons before. This was presented a bit different. Slowly we are learning how to show scientifically what civilizations knew thousands of years ago.

      The other articles about mirror neurons were solely about their existence. I think it is still a new topic of research, so there are bound to be some incorrect information until we amass more data.

    The two video's on Empathy were quite different and very insightful. Our group discussions were quite varied and that is what makes these meetings so much fun to attend. Different viewpoints help us all grow.
