The Neuroscience of Empathy, Compassion, and Self-Compassion  provides contemporary perspectives on the three related domains of  empathy, compassion and self-compassion (ECS). It informs current  research, stimulates further research endeavors, and encourages  continued and creative philosophical and scientific inquiry into the  critical societal constructs of ECS. Examining the growing number of  electrocortical (EEG Power Spectral, Coherence, Evoked Potential, etc.)  studies and the sizeable body of exciting neuroendocrine research (e.g.,  oxytocin, dopamine, etc.) that have accumulated over decades, this  reference is a unique and comprehensive approach to empathy, compassion  and self-compassion. 

  • Provides  perspectives on empathy, compassion and self-compassion (ECS),  including discussions of cruelty, torture, killings, homicides,  suicides, terrorism and other examples of empathy/compassion erosion
  • Addresses autonomic nervous system (vagal) reflections of ECS
  • Discusses recent findings and understanding of ECS from mirror neuron research
  • Covers neuroendocrine manifestations of ECS and self-compassion and the neuroendocrine enhancement
  • Examines the neuroscience research on the enhancement of ECS
  • Includes directed-meditations (mindfulness, mantra, Metta, etc.) and their effects on ECS and the brain
