Jorge Moll makes Neuroscience look Good

The field of Neuroscience has grown by leaps and bounds in the past few years. Jorge Moll has made significant contributions to this field through his pioneering work on the complex neural aspects of the social and moral behavior of humans.

Jorge Moll’s professional journey in neuroscience began with the many years he devoted to his education He is a graduate of Rio de Janiero’s Federal University. He further read pathophysiology from Sao Paulo University. Jorge Moll has a passion for neuroscience. This is the basis of his research and clinical work in this field. In particular, he is fascinated by the neural science that motivates a person to perform selfless acts. His vision led him to initiate the D’Or Institute of Research and Education ( This institute is committed to the goal of using science for the better good of humanity. This center for promotes research, education, and technology to accelerate growth in the sphere of neuroscience.

Jorge Moll has had a long and distinguished career in research and experimental science, as exemplified by his many journal publications. He has over 900 citations and has contributed widely to research. Recently, Jorge Moll discovered exciting links between good Samaritan acts and neural connections that drive them. The experiment conducted by Jorge Moll involved asking participants to consider the needs of co-participants in preference to their own. Surprisingly a corresponding activation of brain areas was observed when they did so. Jorge Moll expressed his thrill about the possibility of science substantiating the reason for satisfaction experienced by generous acts. Jorge Moll conducted these experiments with his co-scientist, Jordan Grafman in 2006.

Jorge Moll has also examined significant aspects of behavior such as moral cognition, social sensitivity, and moral judgment. He has further described the correlates of human emotions like trust, disgust, and aversion. The work of Jorge Moll contradicts the belief that human beings are inherently selfish. Conversely, humans may be more inclined towards altruism. Jorge Moll concluded in one article that the orbital and frontal areas of the brain might be specifically involved in the process of charity and generosity. Jorge Moll has distinguished himself as a remarkable neuroscientist with a penchant for innovative thinking.
