Mothers’ ability to empathically share offspring's emotional feelings is considered integral to primary affective bonds and a healthy socio-emotional development. What neurobiological mechanism is responsible for this ability in humans? It has been proposed that the psychological and neural components of affective experiences are strictly associated with autonomic-visceral changes. Hence, the vicarious response of empathy may also embody a sharing of changes in body physiology. The present study aimed at investigating whether maternal empathy is accompanied by a synchrony in autonomic responses. We simultaneously recorded, in an ecological context with contact free methodology, the facial thermal imprints of mother and child, while the former observed the latter when involved in a distressing situation. The results showed a situation-specific parallelism between mothers’ and children's facial temperature variations, providing preliminary evidence for a direct affective sharing involving autonomic responding. These findings support a multidimensional approach for the comprehension of emotional parent–child relationships.
