Jorge Moll on the Role of the Brain

Establishing how a human brain works under specific circumstances is intriguing, and those who have made strides in this field have been highly regarded for their continued discoveries. Jorge Moll is one individual with such achievements, and he is a renowned Neuroscientist in Brazil. He is also the President-director of the governing board of the D’Or Institute for Research and Education, Rio De Janeiro. By being part of running this institution, Jorge Moll has made it possible to investigate how the physical nature of the human brain affects the process of making a decision. To assist in his clinical research, he came up with a functional magnetic resonance imaging which is an approach that gets used by other researchers in their investigations. Seeking to know the role of the brain in issues regarding morals is not an easy task considering that it would depend if a mind is healthy or damaged. Some unethical actions are undertaken because an individual could be having an issue with their brain which requires to be identified and get diagnosed to find a solution to their problem. Additionally, people in situations that are concluded to be immoral cannot always explain how they found themselves in such circumstances and can as well argue that they are not in the wrong.

 

Either way, some wrong actions are done hastily with the right intention, and therefore, neuroscientists like Jorge Moll would argue that some situations should not be judged quickly as well. In regards to understanding the evolution of the human brain, it could be done by simple observations like how people treat certain situations when near them and when far away from them. People tend to be more affectionate with others when they are close to them and can, therefore, overlook helping someone who is far irrespective of how much they need assistance because the other party does not see the urgency in the situation. In that case, Jorge Moll and other researchers have been keen to help understand the contribution of the brain when it comes to making moral choices and the likely consequences that may follow. In that case, the society should be educated on what to expect from the brain in any situation whether good or bad and should not be quick to judge when unethical activities happen as it would be as a result of a damaged brain.
