Some say empathy and it is these neurons that help us relate to others. If we loose them, in rare forms of disease, than we loose empathy is what this blog on a recent Neuron paper says. Are they in connected regions to the mirror neuron network? Something to think about while I am at IMRF in the UK at Oxford U.
Thanks Kari for pointing out this to us.
Additionally today my sister had a baby so I am an uncle yet again! Keep the babies coming. peace
