Under Stress, Are We Morally Congruent? Physiological And Psychological Influences On Moral JudgmentsMedical News Today (2009)
AbstractEmpirical work on moral decision-making strongly suggests that multi-system processes are involved, including affective, cognitive, and physiological mechanisms. While extensive neuroscientific research exists on the neurological correlates of high-conflict moral judgments, little psychophysiological research has investigated whether stress reactivity, as biological processes, may influence judgments that are explicitly socio-moral in nature.
