I’ve heard of V.S. Ramachandran before, but I’ve never actually read or seen any of his work.
I’m glad I changed that. Below is a talk that Ramachandran gave at a 2009 TED Talk in India. Ramachandran is a Professor of Psychology & Neurosciences at the University of California at San Diego.
I particularly like how he brings in the discussion of mirror neurons and ties it into Eastern philosophical principles of non-duality. He calls mirror neurons “Gandhi neurons.”
Definitely a great, info-packed talk by an influential mind on a very important topic.
