It is for the first time that a study has linked liking or disliking for a person to how their actions are processed by one.
According to a previous report, a person one likes gains more compassion by him as compared to a disliked person. But, it is being said by the current study researchers that it depends differently on one’s gender, age and race.
Jewish men were enrolled for the study, as per the findings, all of whom were segregated in two groups. While half of them were made to be disliked by being presented as neo-Nazis, the other half were presented as open-minded, so that they are liked.
Generally, as told in the meanwhile, watching someone else triggers a 'mirroring' effect in one. This means the brain parts responsible for movement process become activated. The same causes one to observe disliked person as slowly moving, for instance, even if he is not. Also, liked person is empathized more.
And the study found that when men watched disliked person, the particular brain part that gets activated, showed a different activity pattern. "Even something as basic as how we process visual stimuli of a movement is modulated by social factors, such as our interpersonal relationships and social group membership”, concluded the report.
