Jorge Moll and His Interesting Scientific Findings
Jorge Moll, a renowned Brazilian and (Institute of Research & Education) IDIOR’s president has made several interesting scientific discoveries that have left many amused. On 27th November 2017, he published a new study that revealed that altruistic motivation, which is due to brain functioning, is the reason why sports fans get crazy about their teams.
Another study commissioned by Jorge Moll together with his fellow neuroscientist Jordan Grafman suggested that it feels good to give than receive. The findings of this study showed that after donating; a specific part of the human brain is activated triggering the ‘feel’ good feeling among donors.
In 2006, a study done by National Institute of Health and headed by Jorge Moll revealed the existence of a relationship between sense of altruism and morality with the physiology of the human brain. The study that entailed scanning the human brains of the participants showed that a primitive part of the human brain is activated when people made decisions that seem to benefit others.
Although it is natural to feel good after doing something right, Jorge Moll and psychologist Joao Ascenso carried out a study to demonstrate how the human brain processes altruist behavior. They were able to prove that some brains parts linked with pleasurable activities and events were activated once the participants did something right.
