However, a great deal of research suggests that this is not the case—and a recent study from Stanford University suggests that, ironically, positive emotions may play a …

Are women really more compassionate?

Written By Dr. Emma Seppala

Yesterday, journalists at Huffington Post Live asked me to comment on whether women are more compassionate than men. Scientists in general tend to cringe at any strong black-and-white statements of this kind since we know there is no data to support such strong claims. If you ask a neuroscientist to distinguish a male from a female brain, for example, s/he would have a …

This was an issue that …

The Science Behind the Joy of Sharing

Written By Dr. Emma Seppala

Positive experiences happen to us everyday yet we don’t always take full advantage of them. Have you ever noticed that it could be a great day (you had 8 hours of sleep, it’s the weekend, had a great conversation with a friend etc…) but that it takes just one harsh word from someone or one piece of bad news to ruin …

Callousness Comes With a Cost

Written By Daryl Cameron

The Dalai Lama once said that “compassion is a necessity, not a luxury … without it, humanity cannot survive.” Compassion is the emotion that we feel in response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help.
