Moral value is an important aspect of our daily life, every day we encounter issues that cause our brain to react in different ways. According to Jorge Moll, who owns one of the biggest hospital groups in Brazil, says that morality has a vast connection with the deep neurobiological basis. He continues to add that the moral values do not matter by themselves, but what counts is the behavior of individuals and the society as a whole. The society concepts such as creation, culture and the genetic inheritance all carry the weight that determines the values of certain individuals or the society.
Jorge Moll is a neuroscientist who has dedicated his life to researching the aspects of morality in the Brazillian society. He is also the director of D’Or Institute for Research and Teaching. From his view, he came up with the ideology that the Brazilian society is more hedonistic (abc.org). He has done many research studies of altruism which defines the affiliative emotions, the affinities that bring people together to be identified as the members of a family, or even a group of people who come together and relate because they have a particular interest that brings them together. Such as a group football fans who always have that common fantasy about the game and this brings them together to socialize.
Moll says the emotions form all the foundation and the structure of the core values in human beings. This is a neurological process that starts from the perspective of a person, distributed to the brain; it involves a wide section of the human reaction processes involving all the parts of the human affinity associated with reasoning out issues and bringing up the character that determines how one perceives things and reacts to them.
According to Jorge Moll, morality is a very complex activity which involves adaptation and evolutionary, It has taken them long enough to understand how the system works. He says that morality combines the social concepts and behaviors such as attitude towards generosity or laziness. These concepts are processed at the anterior temporal cortex where the brain interacts with deep regions to acquire and access the emotional relevance of the human being.
