You shouldn't have: Your brain on others' crimes


Haushofer, Johannes; Fehr, Ernst (2008). You shouldn't have: Your brain on others' crimes. Neuron, 60(5):738-740.

Abstract

Our legal system requires assigning responsibility for crimes and deciding on appropriate punishments. A new fMRI study by Buckholtz et al. in this issue of Neuron reveals that the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (rDLPFC) plays a key role in these cognitive processes. This finding sheds light on the neural mechanisms underlying moral judgment from a third-party perspective.
