Hi All,

At the last meeting, Eoin and I mentioned a mirror neurons day that we were going to in October at the University of Glasgow.  Please find details below.  Should be an interesting debate.

Best wishes,

Ever since the discovery of mirror neurons in monkeys, which were found to activate during action
control as well as during action observation, it has been debated if and how their existence and
function translates to humans. Large parts of research and discussion have been devoted to the
identification and measurement of actual mirror neurons, a mirror system, or a mirror mechanism
in humans. While these discussions are of course important, here we aim at discussing the wider
implications of such a capacity, assuming that it exists in some form or another. We therefore
dedicate this debate to "The Meaning of Mirror Neurons" and we aim at discussing their
potential role in development, evolution, mental simulation, social interaction and theory of mind
