    Hi Raymond,

    If I remember correctly, Decety's research is linked to the discovery of Mirror Neurons by Rizzolati et al, from the University of Parma in Italy.

    Here is another ref : Vittorio Gallese, "The manifold nature of interpersonal relations: the quest for a common mechanism", Phil. Trans. R. Soc. Lond. B (2003), Published online 14 February 2003 (I found it on the web) Gallese is a member of Rizzolati's team.

    There are several excellent papers that have been published on that subject. A Google research with "Mirror Neurons" and Memes or Memetics will lead you to a lot of them.

    Yours sincerely.

    Paul Trehin
