Details About the talk

Neurowetenschapper Vilayanur Ramachandran schetst de fascinerende functies van spiegelneuronen. Deze neuronen, die pas recent ontdekt zijn, stellen ons in staat complexe sociale gedragingen aan te leren. Sommige van die gedragingen vormden de grondslag van de menselijke beschaving zoals we die nu kennen.
