Mirror neurons fire when monkeys break peanuts in their hands.

Neurons: How We Reflect on the behavior – but it was the work done with monkeys in Rizzolatti lab that gave a name to the multitasking mental cells that make this possible. Mirror neurons fire when monkeys break peanuts in their hands, when they see others break peanuts – even when, in total darkness, they merely hear peanuts broken. That’s why it is called a mirror neuron system, says Iacoboni. It’s almost like the monkey is watching his own action reflected by the mirror. .

Recently I for this magazine for this magazine about the power of movies on behavior, to my surprise, many researchers discussed, without prompting, play the role of mirror neurons explain why the audience is so closely with on-screen emotions. A short time later I read an article in Time magazine, the mirror neurons could form the basis for empathy, social behavior, and even language. A psychologist placed these neurons on the same plane as DNA in the range of scientific discovery.. Mirror neurons – the tiny neurological structures that fire both action action and take it, exposing the true social nature of the brain. Since then, the term has become a powerful Keyword: technical enough to impress dinner, simple enough to explain to Grandma; sweeter sound than, say, the Bose-Einstein condensate. Continue reading

The team then tested navigate how well two groups of rats in the position.

All rats received a standard diet fed rats and a maze trained twice a day for five days before the start of the fructose diet. The team then tested navigate how well two groups of rats in the position, the labyrinth only one output, only one output, but a plurality of openings were. Visual landmarks were used to study the rats and remember their way.

After six weeks, the rats were tested for their ability to find the exit of the maze. U.S. Citiescond group of rats to navigate the maze faster than the rats that did not receive omega-3 fatty acids, Gomez – Pinilla completed. The DHA – deprived animals were slower, and their brains showed a decrease of synaptic activity.
