Jorge Moll: A Renowned Neuroscientist

Jorge Moll is a well-known neuroscientist. He is the president and director of D’Or Institute for Research and Education. Jorge has been known for a long time in investigating the functioning of the brain and the physical nature effects of the human decision-making. He specializes in cognitive neuroscience. Jorge’s most research activities focus on moral cognition and neural bases of behavior. His work major on offering an invaluable look at how the brain works in matters around ethics and morality.

 

Jorge Moll researched in 2006 together with other scientists at National Institute of Health. The research has brought up many issues and concerns on how the functionality of the brains affects the behavior of people in matters of morality and altruism. Moll together with Jordan Grafman, a neuroscientist, designed the study. The study focused on scanning the brains of the individuals who were appointed. They got involved in the donation of money for charitable events and the other option of keeping it for themselves.

 

The research showed that the individuals who made the decisions that were towards benefiting others some parts of the brain was activated. The brain response is associated with the portion of the brain function on sex and food. This is to mean that people give donations or give to help others because it activates some centers and makes them feel good. This meant that most of the generations in line with spiritual leaders and philosophers who are known to be generous givers because it makes them feel good. Jorge Moll continues to explore the issue in that the brain has a role in morality. The findings pointed out that the morality is fundamental. The concept has been furthered by the many other studies that point out to the species in making ethical decisions. All these studies point out that empathy is a foundation of morality. This study is connected to how it affects the human awareness of doing right or wrong. The research is still moving on with more issues relating to moral responsibility. There is a probability that the thinking changes with how the morality level of a person is formed. More topics are done and being under conduct to ensure that it runs well.
