Mirror neurons and human evolution

Mirror Neurons and imitation learning as the driving force behind "the great leap forward" in human evolution.

The discovery of mirror neurons in the frontal lobes of monkeys, and their potential relevance to human brain evolution which I speculate on in this essay is the single most important "unreported" (or at least, unpublicized) story of the decade. I predict that mirror neurons will do for psychology what DNA did for biology: they will provide a unifying framework and help explain a host of mental abilities that have hitherto remained mysterious and inaccessible to experiments.
