The other side of the mirror

The discussion session after the talks was so friendly ... what's wrong with us?? There is consensus on the data, by and large, but there seemed to be growing discomfort, namely with the misprediction of the mirror neuron view for lesion data. It's clear that the mirror crowd owes a better explanation.

Karthik: Greg won
Al: "I think Greg won"
Bill: David won.
David: it's time to get mechanistic, assuming the mirror neurons exist in humans. Computationally motivated cognitive science models will help.
