Marco Iacoboni

Mirror Neurons and Our Capacity for Empathy
Wednesday, May 9, 2012
Theater

The discovery of mirror neurons is one of the most significant advances in neuroscience and helps demystify how we imitate and understand one another. Dr. Marco Iacoboni’s work in this area illuminates the remarkable human ability to accurately interpret the feelings and intentions of others. Taking imitation as a fundamental form of learning and non-verbal communication during development, he shares his findings on its profound implications for understanding empathy. Susan Sgorbati joins Iacoboni after his lecture to discuss how empathy is a core component in any emergent collaborative process of creation, whether in dance or in applied strategies for conflict resolution.
