I haven't read much Ramachandran. Does he explicitly say this anywhere or did you infer it from his writings, and if he did explicitly say it, where can I find this information?

I think it may also be in his excellent book "The tell-tale brain".

@Steve, you're correct on both counts: Rama discusses mirror neurons in Chapter 4: The Neurons That Shaped Civilisation; and it is an excellent book:

The Tell-Tale Brain: Unlocking the Mystery of Human Nature: mirror neurons - pages 120-135.
