Lab Publishes Paper on Empathy Choice in Physicians

The lab recently published the paper, "Empathy choice in physicians and non-physicians", now in press for an upcoming special issue of the bright and dark sides of empathy in British Journal of Social Psychology. In the paper, a sample of practicing physicians and demographically matched controls completed the Empathy Selection Task, in which they could choose to feel empathy or be detached from suffering targets.
