This is an interesting minireview in Current Biology about mirror neurons. If you didn’t already know, a mirror neuron is a neuron that fires when an animal acts and also when the animal observes this same action performed by another animal. They were first discovered in macaques about 20 years ago. This discovery was exciting because it led to a new way of thinking about how we act and its relationship to the actions of others.
