The role of moral sentiments and emotions in human nature
This project investigates the effects of moral sentiments and emotions on decision processes. It will identify states of physiological arousal, determine whether a significant genetic effect is present, assess the relevance of individuals’ environment and inherited values, and provide a better biological micro-foundation for human behaviour.
The project involves collaboration with researchers in the USA, Switzerland and Sweden.
