Memory and Morality in the Mind and Brain

William L. Harkness Hall

Speakers: Molly Crockett and Nicholas Turk-Browne ’09 PhD

“How do we balance selfish interests against moral values? How do we make decisions about what to do? How do we perceive, learn, and remember what happens in our lives?” *

The professors listed gave an engaging presentation with effective interactive examples that illustrated how “brain imaging”, and “computational tools” can be used to diagram interrelations among various parts of the brain to give us a “snapshot” of how we process information and which parts of the brain are stimulated in the process, giving us a potential understanding of what “moral” decisions visually look like in our consciousness, based on brain imaging.
