Moral sense is defined as a feeling of the rightness or wrongness of an action that knowingly causes harm to people other than the agent. The large amount of data collected over the past decade allows drawing some definite conclusions about the neurobiological foundations of moral reasoning as well as a systematic investigation of methodological variables during fMRI studies. Here, we verified the existence of converging and consistent evidence in the current literature by means of a meta… Expand
Common and distinct neural networks involved in fMRI studies investigating morality: an ALE meta-analysis
TLDR
A series of activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analyses revealed a series of common brain areas associated with all moral tasks, but also revealed unique networks associated with each moral modality, suggesting that different moral tasks recruit specialised brain regions. Expand
Morality and the Brain: The Right Hemisphere and Doing Right
TLDR
The observed preponderance of right hemisphere lesions in individuals with acquired immorality offers a plausible hypothesis that can be tested in clinical settings, and advances in the neuroscience of morality promise to yield potentially transformative clinical and societal benefits. Expand
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
Neural correlates of conventional and harm/welfare-based moral decision-making
The degree to which social norms are processed by a unitary system or dissociable systems remains debated. Much research on children’s social-cognitive judgments has supported the distinction betweenExpand
Better together? The neural response to moral dilemmas is moderated by the presence of a close other.
We investigated the modulation of neural and behavioral responses to moral dilemmasby the physical presence of a close friend. We argue that the presence of a close othernot only changes the moralExpand
The moral brain and moral behaviour in patients with Parkinson’s disease: a review of the literature
TLDR
There are no convincing data supporting the hypothesis that dopaminergic treatment or deep brain stimulation of the STN per se interfere with morality in PD patients, although subgroups of patients may display socially unacceptable behaviour. Expand
Morality recruits neural reward circuitry to shape economic decision making
TLDR
Evidence that morality modulates both the decision making and the outcome evaluation in economic situations is provided, with evidence that people are willing to invest a larger amount of money into a moral project that may benefit society than they are into an immoral project that they think will harm society. Expand
Expectancy effects of pain and disgust in perceptual and moral decisions
Although expectancy effects have been described before (e.g. placebo effect), no one ever questioned their specificity. After all, it might be that when people anticipate pain, they form aExpand
The “existential” in existential psychotherapy: pressing issues of everyday life necessitate intuition informed practice
ABSTRACT It is suggested that intuitive knowing (tacit, relatively swift processing) guiding a clinician’s hands-on behaviour is presently marginalised in favour of a focus upon “reflective practice”Expand
"Would You Allow Your Wife to Dress in a Miniskirt to the Party"?: Batterers Do Not Activate Default Mode Network During Moral Decisions About Intimate Partner Violence.
TLDR
Preliminary results showed that batterers do not activate moral areas during IPV dilemmas specifically, but do so during GV dilemma, suggesting that decisions about their female partners do not entail moral conflict. 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
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
Neural correlates of moral judgments in first- and third-person perspectives: implications for neuroethics and beyond
TLDR
Results indicate that different neural mechanisms appear to be involved in first or third person perspectives in moral cognition, and suggest two possible ways in which the hippocampus may support the process of moral judgment: by the engagement of episodic memory and its role in understanding the behaviors and emotions of others. Expand
Title : Contextual and perceptual brain processes underlying moral cognition : A quantitative meta-analysis of moral reasoning and moral emotions Running head : Moral cognition & the brain
Background and Objectives Human morality has been investigated using a variety of tasks ranging from judgments of hypothetical dilemmas to viewing morally salient stimuli. These experiments haveExpand
Damage to the prefrontal cortex increases utilitarian moral judgements
TLDR
It is shown that six patients with focal bilateral damage to the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (VMPC), a brain region necessary for the normal generation of emotions, produce an abnormally ‘utilitarian’ pattern of judgements on moral dilemmas that pit compelling considerations of aggregate welfare against highly emotionally aversive behaviours. Expand
How should I decide? The neural correlates of everyday moral reasoning
TLDR
Findings on the neuroscience of moral understanding are extended by extending it to everyday moral decisions and the results show that the amydala region plays a central role in the processing of negative emotional consequences associated with immoral decisions. Expand
The neural processing of moral sensitivity to issues of justice and care
TLDR
A role for access to self histories and identities and social perspectives in sensitivity to moral issues is suggested, and neural representations of the subcomponent process of moral sensitivity originally proposed by Rest are provided, to support differing neural information processing for the interpretive recognition of justice and care moral issues. Expand
How does morality work in the brain? A functional and structural perspective of moral behavior
TLDR
The main brain areas that have been associated with morality at both structural and functional levels are reviewed and how it can be studied is speculated about. Expand
Moral decision-making, ToM, empathy and the default mode network
TLDR
It is suggested that moral decision- making entails a greater degree of internally directed processing, such as self-referential mental processing and the representation of intentions and feelings, than non-moral decision-making. Expand
Integrative Moral Judgment: Dissociating the Roles of the Amygdala and Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
Findings support the hypothesis that the amygdala provides an affective assessment of the action in question, whereas the vmPFC integrates that signal with a utilitarian assessment of expected outcomes to yield “all things considered” moral judgments. Expand
