Study Finds: Empathy Driven by Social Experiences

This is a picture taken by University of Chicago, Kevin Jiang during the study of how empathy is affected in rats

Recently the University of Chicago did an interesting study on empathy driven behaviors in rats. The whole study and article will make you think profoundly about how humans react and have empathy towards people of various genders, races and ethnicities. The study found that rats were not naturally born with a sense of empathy, but rather developed a sense of empathy through positive social experiences. In order to expand this sense of empathy the rate needed to be exposed to diverse groups of rats. This study was judged by seeing how frequently rats freed other strangers.
