202202.28 Psychological Determinants of Helping Behavior (Symposium presentation) Posted in RESEARCH

In recent years, cognitive neuroscience has focused exclusively on empathic concern as a psychological determinant of helping behavior. However, research on the relationship between helping behavior and personality traits in disasters has identified three other traits besides those related to compassionate concern. In addition, an fMRI study of helping behavior identified brain activity involved in the inhibition of helping behavior. The cognitive mechanisms of self-other relationships may be the key to a deeper understanding of these processes. I gave a talk titled "The role of self-other-relationship cognition in helping behavior" at the symposium "Human MRI" of the 24th Japanese Society for Human Brain Mapping. (Sugiura)
