 Abstract: In this talk I will present findings from two strands of developmental research. The first part will explore the development of overcoming egocentric tendencies when making judgments of others’ emotional states. I will present a series of newly developed paradigms suited to studying various types of emotional egocentricity in children, adults as well as patient populations. These studies suggest a unique role of right supramarginal gyrus in overcoming emotional egocentricity, given its pronounced connectivity with a network of regions involved in empathic judgments. The second part will focus on the development of social emotions such as envy and Schadenfreude. I will show that this depends critically on the development of more general emotion regulation abilities and provide tentative evidence for some evolutionary continuity of social emotions through comparative studies. I will close with a discussion of the role of domain-general processes in the development of social behavior.
