“Understanding Otherness: The Neural Bases of Action Comprehension and Pain Empathy in a Congenital Amputee”

I’m going to find out.
I think if they can do the equivalent thing in another way, a lack of that limb won’t matter and they’ll be able to empathize.
But if not, it’ll be more difficult when there’s no equivalent possible. An example that we may relate to might be: “You know when your magnetosensors go haywire during sunspots lol”
