#1 When I Was 11, I Broke My Arm, and I Didn’t Shed a Tear.

Social psychologist Martingano, from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, explains that our brain’s ability to interpret visual cues is the key to why we can feel the pain and discomfort of others when looking at photos.

“Humans can gather significant emotional information solely from visual cues, without needing other sensory input. The activation of our mirror neuron system, a set of brain cells that activate both when we perform an action and when we observe someone else doing the same action, plays a central role,” she told Board Panda.

“Specifically, mirror neurons in areas like the anterior insular and the anterior cingulate cortex activate when we witness another person’s pain, much like they would if we were experiencing the pain ourselves. This is why we might feel a visceral sensation, akin to ants crawling on our skin, when viewing images of others in similar situations.”
