Magnetic pulses can disrupt moral judgment

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology were able to disrupt part of the brain that is related to moral judgment by using a magnetic field applied to the scalp of study participants. Normal neural activity in that part of the brain was switched off, resulting in a “no harm, no foul” mentality.

    Thanks EC…..
    It is ALWAYS a tale of whiny briny woes…..society seems to like those and suck right onto…..the victim nipple.
    Your right…..about not shocking the dupes with our insensativity sounding crass…with shutem down words…..
    So I act indifferent and sometimes show (appear) to be compassionate towards the spath too……
    COUNTER CONTROL….in order to be heard…..

    Thanks Socio Sibs, and welcome to LF, I’m assuming from your screen name you have some socipaths in your family. Sorry! That’s not a fun thing, but does qualiofy you as a “member” of our “club”—and if you have to be a member of a club you don’t want to join, this is the best one available I think!@ Welcome!

    Thank you for the welcome, OxDrover.

    Yes, there’s a sociopath in my life — I grew up with her.

    And yes, this is a top-notch “club”. I’ve read a lot of articles, blogs, and posts here, but still only a fraction of what all is available at this site. Its creator & authors are providing an invaluable service, and I count it among the resources I access to learn more as I continue my pursuit to expose sociopaths and raise public awareness.

    I appreciate the contributions you’ve made here, and how warm & welcoming you are to other members, including myself.

    Trying to be another voice to help educate the mainstream and generally raise public awareness about this affliction on society.
