The Social Brain and Empathy

It enables us to live in groups and socialize. It paves the way for the development of moral reasoning and motivates prosocial behavior. Empathy is an essential cornerstone of the patient-doctor relationship. It is associated with better outcomes and fewer malpractice claims.

But in the past decade, empathy research has blossomed into a vibrant and multidisciplinary field of study, which includes developmental psychology, evolutionary biology, social psychology, and affective social neuroscience
