Neural signatures of parental empathic responses to imagined suffering of their adolescent child

Description: This dataset contains data on a task in which parents of adolescents performed the parental empathy task. The goal of this specific study was to examine neural responses to both physically and socially unpleasant situations involving parents' own child versus an unfamiliar child and also involving themselves. Additionally, we aimed to determine whether individual differences in parental neural responses to their own child's suffering are associated with parental care in daily life (as reported by the adolescent child). While in the scanner, parents were confronted with unpleasant situations involving their own child, an unfamiliar child, and themselves. Parents were asked to vividly imagine these situations and indicate their levels of distress.
