"The Intersubjective Mirror in Infant Learning and Evolution of
Speech" illustrates how recent findings about primary intersubjectivity,
participant perception and mirror neurons afford a new understanding of
children's nature, dialogue and language.

Based on recent infancy research and the mirror neurons discovery, studies
of early speech perception, comparative primate studies and computer
simulations of language evolution, this book offers replies to questions
as: When and how may spoken language have emerged? How is it that infants
so soon after birth become so efficient in their speech perception? What
enables 11-month-olds to afford and reciprocate care? What are the steps
from infant imitation and simulation of body movements to simulation of
mind in conversation partners?

Stein Bråten is founder and chair of the Theory Forum network with some of
the world_s leading infancy, primate and brain researchers who have
contributed to his edited volumes for Cambridge University Press (1998) and
John Benjamins Publishing Company (2007). (Series B)
