Abstract

Previous functional brain imaging studies suggest that the ability to infer the intentions and mental states of others (social cognition) is mediatedby medial prefrontal cortex. Little is known about the anatomy of empathy and forgiveness. We used functional MRI to detect brain regions engaged by judging others' emotional states and the forgivability of their crimes. Tenvolunteers read and made judgements based an social scenarios and a high level baseline task (social reasoning). Both empathic and forgivability judgements activated left superior frontal gyrus, orbitofrontal gyrus and precuneus. Empathic judgements also activated left anterior middle temporal and left inferior frontal gyri, while forgivability judgements activated posterior cingulate gyrus. Empathic and forgivability judgements activate specific regions of the human brain, which we propose contribute to social cohesion. NeuroReport 12:2433-2438 (C) 2001 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
