Hello,I have a question which I hope someone will be able to answer. I am coming from a neuroscience perspective.We all know what water feels like because we encounter on a regular basis, showers, washing up, swimming etc. When a performer is using water on stage and the audience is invited to take part by putting their hand in water to have a shared experience what happens in the body to make the audience member go from sitting watching to participating. I have done some research and I keep coming across mirror neurons firing and canon neurons. My understanding of mirror neurons is they only fire when a physical action is done and then the other person copies it, so not the same as the invitation to put their hand in water.If anyone could help by answering or suggesting places to look that arent too complicated I would be very grateful.Thanks LjcolemanMod edit - I've formatted your subject line as a question - please can you do so in the future to keep the forum tidy and easy to navigate? Thanks.
