How would you react if your best friend poisoned you, but you learned later that their actions were "not their own?" Scientists at MIT revealed findings from a study that could substantiate this situation.
The study involved turning off a person's "morality switch" by disrupting a part of the brain called the right "temporoparietal junction," referred to as TPJ, which is located just above and behind a person's right ear. By disrupting the brain with a magnetic field that is applied to the scalp, researchers have proven that a person's moral judgment is affected after about 25 minutes of magnetic pulses being sent to the brain. This sort of evidence may want you to reconsider using your right ear and hand when talking on your cell phone!
