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.

OM goodness – what happened to the ARTICLE link “Page not found…” ?

it would have been a fun read this morning…

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.

Sociosibs –

I like your website!

Way to go!!!!!

Thank you, Learning.

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