Poster 48: Amelie Bennett – How We Move When We Feel: Kinesthetic Empathy through Mirror Neuron Systems

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Kate Mattingly

This work examined how dance/movement therapy could improve empathy and emotion recognition in non-clinical adults and children. Although our work with adults showed promise, there are currently too many confounds in DMT practice to accurately measure any improvements. Our work with children also showed promise, but due to COVID-19 was cut short before we could collect enough data. The future goal of this project is to clarify our confounds and work with clinical populations with low empathy.
