Research title
Disentangling Empathy Processes in the Human Brain


Research project

Neuroscience has distinguished so far two main large brain networks which underlie two main constructs involved with empathetic processes in the brain: Theory of Mind (ToM) and Embodied Simulation (ES). In our study, we developed a novel paradigm, which induces these processes by using short films, which are both ecological and dynamic.
