A Mirror Neuron* I have come
to see, is the basis of
empathy. Monkey see, monkey do? True!

*A mirror neuron is a neuron
that fires both when an animal
acts and when the animal observes
the same action performed by another.
So cool! I love this – it’s amazing when some of the concepts we think of as “ordinary” or those that we take for granted, have their root in our cells!!
Interesting! I’ll keep it in mind.
Deep. Very deep. Kinda like looking through a glass darkly.
way too deep for me, my neurons are shortcircuting!!! but i do love the image!!!
what a beautiful photo!
Well, that is quite cool!
I think I get it now. What a cute animal photo.
I adore the photo and I learned something too.
Loved the educational and interesting post today Maureen. I have never heard of mirror neurons before.
Hi me again, sorry but I deleted the post with your e-mail address so this is the only way I could answer your question. Yes we have more cats then Spooky-boo. We have 5 others that live here and one that lives over at my moms next door. Plus we take care of about 4 neighborhood cats as well.
I have never heard of mirror neurons and now I have learned something new! Such a sweet photo, too. My rescue dog imitates his doggie companion to learn socialization, so I think they are using their mirror neurons! I’ll put your new blog address on my roll, sweet friend. Hugs xo Karen
Ein so interessantes Foto mit einem aufklärendem Text, das hast du ganz super gemacht.:-)
Danke für deinen Beitrag. !
Ein wunderschönes Wochenende wünscht dir
Awww… what a sweet picture 🙂 Hugs to you, sweet friend!
Awww, so very sweet. ❤
We have two cats… Penny, who we call Pennymaker, and Maisy who's full name is Maisy Daze Sweet Potato Purr Muffin. I came up with her name in such a random way not long after we adopted her and she certainly has the loudest purr I've ever heard from a cat. lol My 5 year-old daughter loves calling her by her full name and it gives her the giggles every time. 🙂
