#ScienceUpFirst, Art Alongside: Empathy 🤝

Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes is one of the hardest things we can do. Good science communicators think about a topic from their audience’s perspective. Once we put ourselves in that frame of mind, real conversations become much easier.

Today’s artwork is brought to you by the uber-talented Ameesha Lee from Ontario! ⭐🖌️

This illustration was inspired by the science of brain cells called mirror neurons. These create an echo of another person’s emotions in our own minds. Rad! 🧠
