Mirror Neurons and How We Connect


Have you ever wondered what connects us to each other? What the Vagus Nerve, your beating heart (cardiovascular system), digestive tract (Enteric Nervous System), and to some extent, believe it or not, the brain and respiratory system. Everything connects; your body is a complex and organized system.

Mirror neurons are one of the most important recent discoveries in neuroscience. They are a variety of visuospatial neurons which indicate fundamentally about human social interaction. Or, respond to actions that we see in others and fire in that same way when we recreate that action ourselves. They have been linked to other human behaviors and thought processes, and defects in them linked to disorders such as autism.
