Discussion idea: Mirror Neurons!

Post #: 20
Hi All, We had discussed the idea of reading a peer-reviewed article or two. How about discussing a review article on the Mirror Neuron system and their central role in learning and communication. Here are some recent articles. Please let me know if you are interested, and if you can get access to the full text pdf.

Articles:

The mirror neuron system: a fresh view.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.n...­


Interpreting actions: the goal behind mirror neuron function.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.n...­

A word in the hand: action, gesture and mental representation in humans and non-human primates.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.n...­

Representing actions through their sound
http://www.ncbi.nlm.n...­

I look forward to your response.

Maybe read one of these (e.g., The mirror neuron system: a fresh view at http://www.unipr.it/a...­) in combo with Pinker's critique of certain mirror neuron theories....
