Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Moral disgust has a ‘bad taste’

(Università di Bologna) Witnessing shared moral norms being disrespected inhibits the neurons responsible for controlling our tongue, a reaction similar to the one we have when we taste something unpleasant. This is what emerges from a study led by the University of Bologna and the University of Messina. This work received the "Best Paper Prize 2021" during the XII International Scientific Conference on Neuroethics.
