Psychobiological basis of empathy

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (1):46-47 (2001)

Abstract
Empathy represents one of the basic forms of human expression. Empathy evolved to facilitate social behavior. The perception action model, extended to empathy, is an exciting paradigm in which to undertake contemporary cognitive and comparative neuroscience. It renders the perception of events as an active affair, both when watching others, and when performing actions.
