On the neural grounding for metaphor and projection

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):134-135 (2005)
Abstract
Focusing on the mirror system and imitation, I examine the role of metaphor and projection in evolutionary neurolinguistics. I suggest that the key to language evolution in hominid might be an ability to project one's thoughts and feelings onto another agent or object, to see and feel things from another perspective, and to be able to empathize with another agent.
