You know that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you get or give a hug?

Apparently, just watching a caress is as good as getting one.

Scientists say your brain can react to other people's sensations.

The study in the Journal of Neuroscience may indicate that our brain is wired in such a way that we can feel and process other people's sensations.

Scientists add, this could open up new ways of studying how we create empathy.
