When contributions to the Mirror Neuron Forum (Gallese, Gernsbacher, Heyes, Hickock, & Iacoboni, 2011, this issue) are viewed optimistically, it is clear that progress is being made in understanding whether and how the human mirror neuron system supports psychological processes as diverse as action understanding, speech perception, and social cognition. Nonetheless, further progress requires not just more data, but also theoretical and methodological advances.
