New survey feature!
Ok, I just discovered that we can easily add surveys to the blog, so let's try it out for fun. How do people feel about mirror neurons and speech perception? Take the survey in the right column of the blog.
How many times can we vote?
Depends on how many IP addresses you can log on from. :-) Once you vote on a given computer it will not show you the response options anymore from that IP address, only the current vote tally.
Well, I've just voted! Tash Postle, one of my PhD students, had a systematic look at this mirror neuron stuff and showed some of her results in a poster at SFN. Poster available at: http://www.cmr.uq.edu.au/~greig/_files/posters/Postle_SFN07.pdf
No guessing my view on this issue...
Thanks Greig for your vote and the link to the poster. Nice (non-)result. I agree that there is no compelling evidence for a somatotopically organized semantics. Besides the imaging data, there is also no evidence that damage to these frontal areas produces somato-selective deficits in comprehension.
