Developing research on mirror neurons and neuroesthetics suggests an alternative model of vision. Mirror neurons, found in the human brain, are the subject of recent research on “physical empathy”; the ability to physically respond to, for example, someone breaking their leg or a couple having sex. The brain actually simulates the experience of what it sees. In other words: 'What I see, I feel.’ This model argues for the importance of empathy in vision, an embodied approach anticipated by phenomenology and now buttressed by neuroscience.
