Empathy is the internal representation or attempted simulation of another individual’s sensory, sensory, or cognitive state. It is distinct from but related to care (concern for the other’s welfare), perspective-taking (the conscious effort to represent another’s state), and emotional contagion. We conduct research aimed at understanding why, when, and in whom empathy most frequently occurs.
