In the past recent events, Jorge Moll has been actively involved in the research of uncovering the basis of human morality. The Neuroscientist raised some rather interesting issues on how brain psychology directly affects human morality and altruism. The research was conducted by both Neuroscientist Jorge Moll and colleague Jordan Graham. The research involved presenting the participants with scenarios where they were required to either donate money to charity or keep the money to themselves. The neuroscientist would then scan the brains of participants during both scenarios.

The findings were rather interesting. Jorge and Partner Jordan found out that a primitive part of the brain was activated when the participants made a decision that benefited others instead of themselves. The findings proposed a case where morality and altruism were not based on ethical thinking of the higher mind but rather allied to parts of the brain that are wired to the human pleasure reactions. Jorge and Jordan research, in other words, was pointing out human reasons for benevolence acts as the ability of the acts to make humans feel good.

The findings received various support theories from instances where spiritual leaders and philosophers. They pointed out acts of kindness and generosity as a way of living a more fulfilled life. Among the studies done by neuroscientist Jorge, this was one of the most outstanding that people all over the world could relate with. Jorge continues to grow in his career as a neuroscientist and he is constantly conducting new research on human Morality and actions.
