Good news for me

I mentioned this a while back on Google+, but since the blog has a wider readership, I though I might mention this here as well. 

I received a fellowship from the Ruhr University, Bochum, to spend 2.5 months there next summer, mid-May to the end of July. I'll be working on empathy, mirror neurons, and the role of action in perception. I will be at the Center for Mind, Brain, and Cognitive EvolutionAlbert Newen and Tobias Schlict will be my hosts there.

Aside from escaping from the heat, humidity, and allergens of the southern US, I'll get to think about some interesting philosophical topics with good colleagues.
