ABSTRACT Morality is an important social construct necessary for understanding what is right and wrong. Neuroimaging studies investigating morality have used a wide variety of paradigms and implicated many different brain areas. Yet, it remains unclear whether differences amongst morality tasks are the cause for such heterogeneous findings. Therefore, in the present study, a series of activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analyses were conducted on 123 datasets (inclusive of 1963… Expand
Establishing a Role of the Semantic Control Network in Social Cognitive Processing: A Meta-analysis of Functional Neuroimaging Studies
TLDR
Investigating whether the neural activation commonly found in social functional neuroimaging studies extends to these ‘semantic control’ regions confirmed that the anterior left IFG region involved in semantic control is reliably engaged in all four social domains, suggesting that social cognition could be partly regulated by the neurocognitive system underpinning semantic control.

RUNNING HEAD : CEREBELLUM , EMOTION , MORALITY 1 Cerebellum and Emotion in Morality
  • Hyemin Han

In the current chapter, I examined the relationship between the cerebellum, emotion, and morality with evidence from large-scale neuroimaging data analysis. Although the aforementioned relationshipExpand
Establishing a Role of the Semantic Control Network in Social Cognitive Processing: a Meta-analysis of Functional Neuroimaging Studies
Abstract Most leading models of socio-cognitive processing devote little discussion to the nature and neuroanatomical correlates of cognitive control mechanisms. Recently, it has been proposed thatExpand
Amygdala Represents Diverse Forms of Intangible Knowledge, That Illuminate Social Processing and Major Clinical Disorders
TLDR
Novel and testable explanations are proposed for the ASD symptoms of disorganized visual scanpaths, apparent social disinterest, preference for concrete cognition, aspects of the disorder’s heterogeneity, and impairment in some activities of daily living. Expand
Toward a hierarchical model of social cognition: A neuroimaging meta-analysis and integrative review of empathy and theory of mind.
TLDR
Evidence of brain activation, brain organization, and behavior into a coherent model of social-cognitive processes is reviewed and integration of empathy and ToM task interrelations found in behavioral studies is validated. Expand
The neural correlates of moral comparison
TLDR
The results suggest that the neural substrates of moral and physical comparisons not only share the frontoparietal network but also rely on specific neural underpinnings, depending on the specific comparison recruited. Expand
The neuroscience of morality and social decision-making
TLDR
Cognitive neuroscience investigations have begun to reveal the distributed neural networks which interact to implement moral judgment and social decision-making, including systems for reward learning, valuation, mental state understanding, and salience processing, which are fundamental to morality. Expand
Aesthetics and morality judgments share cortical neuroarchitecture
TLDR
Overall, neural commonalities are more pronounced than predominant philosophical views would predict and compatible with minority accounts that stress commonalities between aesthetics and morality judgments, such as sentimentalism and a valuation framework. Expand
Preserved intention understanding during moral judgments in schizophrenia
TLDR
Patients with SSD do not have observable difficulties in integrating the protagonist’s belief in the rating of the moral permissibility of the action-outcome, and the notion that moral judgments are deficient in schizophrenia is not supported. Expand
The Neuroscience of Moral Judgment: Empirical and Philosophical Developments
We chart how neuroscience and philosophy have together advanced our understanding of moral judgment with implications for when it goes well or poorly. The field initially focused on brain areasExpand

Understanding the minds of others: A neuroimaging meta-analysis
TLDR
The ALE results revealed common regions shared across all ToM tasks and broader task parameters, but also some important dissociations, which provide the most accurate picture to date of the neural networks that underpin ToM function. Expand
Investigating emotion in moral cognition: a review of evidence from functional neuroimaging and neuropsychology.
TLDR
A narrative review of neuroscientific studies focused on the role of emotion in morality indicates that not only are emotions engaged during moral cognition, but that emotions, particularly those mediated by VMPC, are in fact critical for human morality. Expand
Neural foundation of human moral reasoning: an ALE meta-analysis about the role of personal perspective
TLDR
The existence of converging and consistent evidence in the current literature by means of a meta-analysis of fMRI studies of moral reasoning is verified, strongly supporting a functional specialization as a function of the perspective used during moral reasoning. Expand
Mode of Effective Connectivity within a Putative Neural Network Differentiates Moral Cognitions Related to Care and Justice Ethics
TLDR
These results support a neurobiological differentiation between care and justice ethics and suggest that human moral behavior reflects the outcome of integrating opposing rule-based, self-other perspectives, and emotional responses. Expand
Parsing the neural correlates of moral cognition: ALE meta-analysis on morality, theory of mind, and empathy
TLDR
Investigating neural activity associated with different facets of moral thought provides evidence that the neural network underlying moral decisions is probably domain-global and might be dissociable into cognitive and affective sub-systems. Expand
A Meta-analysis of Functional Neuroimaging Studies of Self- and Other Judgments Reveals a Spatial Gradient for Mentalizing in Medial Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 107 neuroimaging studies of self- and other-related judgments using multilevel kernel density analysis argues for a distributed rather than localizationist account of mPFC organization and support an emerging view on the functional heterogeneity ofmPFC. Expand
Brain activation associated with evaluative processes of guilt and embarrassment: an fMRI study
TLDR
The results support the idea that both guilt and embarrassment are self-conscious emotions, which are social emotions requiring the ability to represent the mental states of others, and are in favor of the notion that evaluative process of embarrassment might be a more complex process than that of guilt. Expand
Neural network of cognitive emotion regulation — An ALE meta-analysis and MACM analysis
TLDR
A model for the core brain network involved in emotion regulation of emotional reactivity is developed and a cluster in the anterior middle cingulate cortex is identified as a region, which is anatomically and functionally in an ideal position to influence behavior and subcortical structures related to affect generation. Expand
Contextual and Perceptual Brain Processes Underlying Moral Cognition: A Quantitative Meta-Analysis of Moral Reasoning and Moral Emotions
TLDR
A convergent pattern of reliable brain activity for both task categories in regions of the default network is revealed, consistent with the social and contextual information processes supported by this brain network. Expand
The speed of morality: a high-density electrical neuroimaging study.
TLDR
The data strongly support the notion that intentionality is the first input to moral computations and demonstrate that emotion acts as a gain antecedent to moral judgment by alerting the individual to the moral salience of a situation and provide evidence for the pervasive role of affect in moral sensitivity and reasoning.
