    What a group!! Such rich, participative learning that I am inspired to read, learn and teach more about how we learn! Thank you to everyone for bringing delicious brain food, your research or resources and of course your intention to share what you know and learn from others.

    Mirror neurons correspond to non-local CDZs. Their connections
    to other CDZs, and their ability to collect and distribute signals based on learned experience, allow the brain to reconstruct an
    action from only part of the story. A whole neural network underlies the understanding of action, rather than a single anatomical site
    or even a single cell.
    The neurons at the heart of this process, and at the heart of non-local CDZs, are not so much like mirrors, after all. They are more
    like puppet masters, pulling the strings of various memories.

      This is great stuff. The author of "Super Brain Yoga", Choa Kok Sui, is also the creator of Pranic Healing (a subtle energy healing that works on the chakras and auric field).

    • Ariane

      We discuss many topics...bring a topic that you wish to share, discuss or present with others. The only criteria is that it must be a BRAIN topic. Looking forward to meeting you.

    Scientists from many different fields will discuss cognitive abilities often regarded as unique to humans including humor, morality, symbolism, creativity, and preoccupation with the minds of others. Emphasis will be placed on the functional uniqueness of these attributes, as opposed to the anatomical uniqueness, and whether these attributes are indeed quantitatively or qualitatively unique to humans.
