Owing moral values feel like rejoicing after your favorite football team wins. Over the years, the Brazilian neuroscientists have discovered the nature of morality. They publish reports in prestigious scientific journals. The experts reveal a form of architecture of the moral values in a human brain. The system is complex and opens opportunities in education, medicine, and social understanding in both masses behavior and social networks dynamics. Learn more about Jorge Moll at Google Scholar.
Social psychology shows that people share some universal values. Honors, generosity, sense of justice, and honesty are common behaviors to people from all cultures. The traits are more than the social construction. Jorge Moll, D’Or Institute for Research and Teaching director explains how morality has a detailed neurobiological basis. The leader of the research line gives an example of how the Brazilian society has become extremely hedonistic.
Moll researches the altruism foundations and affiliative emotions. Affinities enable people to come together and identify themselves in families, groups of religions, friends, and teams. The affiliative emotions are examples of the values architecture. The brain distributes the system and involves deep areas linked to emotions and regions related to the reasoning.
According to the researcher, morality combines emotions that have abstract social concepts. The complex evolutionary adaptation concepts are processed by an anterior temporal cortex region. It interacts with the deep parts of the brain where they obtain emotional relevance.
The neuroscience uses various tools like magnetic reasoning to study how the brain works. Moll and Ricardo de Oliveira-Souza, neurologist, collaborated with foreign scientists to handle the altruism study. In a 2006 publication, they stated that donating actively is the same as making money. Know more about Jorge at Crunchbase.
