    Comment: Is Self–Other Overlap the Key to Understanding Empathy?Nancy Eisenberg & Michael J. Sulik - 2012 - Emotion Review 4 (1):34-35.
    Preston and Hofelich (2012) suggested that researchers disagree on the role of self–other overlap in empathy due to a failure to differentiate among neural overlap, subjective resonance, and personal distress; they also developed a framework for tying neural and subjective overlap to various aspects of functioning they include in the construct of empathy. Although we found their discussion of different processes that have been labeled empathy interesting and helpful, we found their discussion of self–other overlap to be somewhat less useful (...)

    The Relations of Parental Affect and Encouragement to Children's Moral Emotions and Behaviour.Tracy L. Spinrad, Sandra H. Losoya, Nancy Eisenberg, Richard A. Fabes, Stephanie A. Shepard, Amanda Cumberland, Ivanna K. Guthrie & Bridget C. Murphy - 1999 - Journal of Moral Education 28 (3):323-337.
    Although researchers have been concerned with the effects of parental socialisation on children's outcomes, there has been surprisingly little work on the socialisation of children's moral emotions and behaviour. The purpose of this study was to explore the role of observed parental affect and encouragement in children's empathy-related responding and moral behaviour (i.e. cheating). Moreover, the moderating influence of children's characteristics (i.e. sex) on this relationship was investigated. Ninety-seven girls and 119 boys (mean age = 73 months) with a parent (...)

    Distinctions Among Various Modes of Empathy-Related Reactions: A Matter of Importance in Humans.Nancy Eisenberg - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (1):33-34.
    Preston & de Waal minimized differences among constructs such as empathy, sympathy, and personal distress. However, such distinctions have been shown to relate differently to altruistic behavior. Moreover, although the authors discussed the role of regulation in empathy, they did not consider the possibility that sometimes empathy is not well-regulated and likely leads to personal distress rather than sympathy.

    The Role of Emotion in Sociopathy: Contradictions and Unanswered Questions.Nancy Eisenberg - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):553-554.
    Emotion is critical in Mealey's conceptual arguments. However, several of her assertions about the role of emotion in sociopathy are problematic. Questions are raised regarding the link between lack of anxiety and low levels of secondary emotions such as love and sympathy, the argument that sociopaths are low in anxiety but high in neuroticism, and the designation of anxiety as a secondary emotion.
