Psychopaths Don’t Lack Empathy: They Just Have The Ability To Turn It Off At Will

Psychopaths Don’t Lack Empathy: They Just Have The Ability To Turn It Off At Will | Psychology | Scoop.it
A new study using functional MRI shows that individuals diagnosed as psychopaths can turn off their empathy at will.

 

In the end, the research suggests that people with the psychological diagnosis can have the same areas of their brain activated as healthy individuals can. But the research does not go into whether the study's psychpathic participants could actually feel empathy on demand, rather than just regions of their brains being activated. "Psychopathy may not be so much the incapacity to empathize, but a reduced propensity to empathize, paired with a preserved capacity to empathize when required to do so," said Valeria Gazzola, one of the study's authors.

I liked this because it was a good place to start with defining it and making it easy to understand. Seeing the treatment and such helps understand some of the problems schizophrenia has.
