Abstract
© 2019The neurocognitive ability to recognize and share the mental states of others is crucial for our emotional experience and social interaction. Extensive human studies have informed our understanding of the psychobehavioral and neurochemical bases of empathy. Recent evidence shows that simple forms of empathy are conserved from rodents to humans, and rodent models have become particularly useful for understanding the neurobiological correlates of empathy. In this review, we first summarize aspects of empathy at the behavioral and neural circuit levels, and describe recent developments in rodent model behavioral paradigms. We then highlight different neurobiological pathways involved in empathic abilities, with special emphasis on genetic polymorphisms associated with individual differences in empathy. By directly assessing various neurochemical correlates at molecular and neural circuit levels using relevant animal models, we conclude with the suggestion that rodent research can significantly advance our understanding of the neural basis of empathy. This article is part of the Special Issue entitled ‘The neuropharmacology of social behavior: from bench to bedside’
