Empathy and mirror neurons

Lecture reprise due to overwhelming success

We often take for granted the ease with which we understand what occurs in other people’s mind.

Although, this capacity is actually quite surprising: while we watch other people, we seem to have an intuitive access to their invisible mental states. How does our brain perform this mind-reading trick? Neuroimaging techniques can help us find out how the brain understands other people.

Christian Keysers is a French and German neuroscientist. He was part of the research team that discovered auditory mirror neurons in the macaque monkey at the University of Parma. Currently, Keysers is a full Professor for the Social Brain at the UMCG Neuroscience Department and the scientific director of the BCN Neuro Imaging Center.
