Botox Side-Effects: Dulls Empathy - Mimics using empathy

Botox Side-Effects: Dulls Empathy - Mimics using empathy | communicating compassionately | Scoop.it

A new study has found Botox reduces the ability to empathize. The reason is that in order to interpret the emotions others express, we need to mimic those emotions in our own facial expression.

the mimicry happens fast and it's quite unconscious -- just a flicker. After mirroring the other person, your face sends a message to your brain. The brain matches the expression you've embodied to an associated emotion. Conversely, when you can't mimic a perceived emotion, the brain has trouble sorting out what it is. And of course, if you can't tell what other people are feeling, you can't really empathize with them. Since Botox tends to keep the face stuck in neutral, it limits the emotions recipients can identify.
