What are mirror neurons and how do they affect communication in adult relationships?
Relationships are being studied more and more on a biological level than ever before. Those who study communication and psychology are often specialist who study and or have interest in how the brain works. It is an intricate part of advertising and marketing to build a consumer base to understanding the various communication in humans. Understanding mirror neurons is no less important in understanding how people communicate.
Mirror neurons are those neurons in the brain that mirror the emotions of one in another. Strong emotions are tracked by the brain patterns of someone in our space and if connected to a person closely, the brain of one person will pick up the senses of another. This could be compared to the expression often between friends, associates and or lovers that will say, "I was thinking the same thing" and or when two people seem to be on the same page about moving forward on a project or love affair around the same time.
This brain-to-brain link, according to documentation in an article written by Dr. Tian Dayton,
"account for feelings of rapport, which research finds depend in part on extremely rapid synchronization of people's posture, vocal pacing and movements as they interact."
The entire orchestration of communication can be seen through the physiology of the brain-to-brain link that can also help with a mass communication among masses of people such as ingraining fear, selling a fad, causing a sense of peace and or sense of belief among a group of people as in cult communities. All communication and educational specialist learn how emotion came before thinking and speaking. Community leadership in primitive communities was based on a united feeling introduced by an elder that all were connected emotionally as representation of all wise and good. Speaking is based on the intuition and all communication is ways connected to mirror neurons.
