"The Center for Building a Culture of Empathy is the home of the global empathy movement. Our mission is to build a movement for creating a global worldwide culture of empathy and compassion. We do this through a variety of means. First is by community organizing. We bring people together and hold in-person and online meetings and Empathy Circles. Next is by collecting, curating and organizing all the material we find on the internet on the topics. Researching through the arts and sciences. We are putting together a series of documentaries to educate the public and much, much more."
Tony has been studying empathy and was involved in a study that looks at the analytic and empathic neural networks and how they relate to each other. This article 'Empathy represses analytic thought, and vice versa' on Science Blog says, "When the brain fires up the network of neurons that allows us to empathize, it suppresses the network used for analysis, a pivotal study led by a Case Western Reserve University researcher shows... At rest, our brains cycle between the social and analytical networks. But when presented with a task, healthy adults engage the appropriate neural pathway, the researchers found. The study shows for the first time that we have a built-in neural constraint on our ability to be both empathetic and analytic at the same time."
