Transcript of Empathy
The Journey of Empathy
Isomporphic to others' feelings
Shared Network Hypothesis
Understand emotions/actions of others by
simulating feelings using own affective programs
perceiving and assessing pain in others - change in pain network?
affective component (ACC and AI)
sensory component (SI and SII)
Empathy for Pain involves affective but not sensory components of Pain (Singer et al., 2004)
represent and integrate
internal emotional feeling state
Anterior Cingulate Cortex
motivation-action related counterpart
dimensions of pain
l. AI & ACC activtiy increase when fair player get pain
ll. AI & ACC activity reduced when unfair player get pain
lll. NAcc & OFC activity increase when unfair player get pain
Individuals scoring high on PCL-R scale
pain matrix activation for receiving pain
show a deficit in activation in AI;
increase in NAcc for others receiving pain
empathy in neuroeconomics
computational processes underlying ACC & AI
association between stable personality and empathy
investigating the sharing of positive emotion

activation in NAcc (high PCL-R)
Psychopathological Personality Disorder
According to DSM-5
(tendency to synchronize with the other person)
(tendency to automatically adopt
emotional state of another person)
(feelings for somebody)
(emotional-motivational state characterized by feelings of loving/kindness)
