Why is yawning contagious?

Why is it that when we see people yawn, we get the urge to yawn as well? :)

Ooh! I saw this on a science programme!

Apparently, when someone else yawns, we yawn as well, because our subconcious tells us to empathise with the individual who is yawning, by yawning in return.

Interesting, huh? :)
