Researchers may have found where we empathize in the human brain. A small study took a look at how subjects empathize with others. Volunteers were placed in an MRI and then listened to stories of distress and care. Across the board, the results were telling.
Firstly, there is no exact ‘compassion’ neuron, but rather a system of the brain. While there are many studies that look at human emotion, this one is unique. In this study, researchers were able to predict what one person’s scans would show compared to the previous volunteer. When one hears a story of distress, one usually mimics the emotion.
