Structure at the centre of the brain reveals the architecture of empathy

This is unlike the research conducted by the Monash neuroscientists who discovered the correlation between brain structure and empathy.

They have hypothesised that we are able to alter this part of our brain, making it bigger or smaller. It is the first time this has been speculated, as the school of thought remains that brain structures have always been static and unchangeable from birth (such as its size and structural material called soma).
