Neurologically the psychological and physiological benefits of giving are quite apparent. Our systems are designed to thrive when we give to others. Oxytocin, the bonding molecule is released making us feel more compassionate, connected and less alone.  Serotonin floods our brains making us feel safe, well, and more confident. And tasty reward molecule Dopamine joins the wellness party and reinforces our giving with pleasure rewarding us for a job well done. The science of compassion is growing by leaps and bounds.  We hear from physician Dr. Ty Heath, who is learning about the power of giving first hand as a scientist and human being.

Neither may be the result of a purposeless breakdown in function, but rather a valuable specialization trade off.
