Brain Mechanisms That Predict Generosity in Children Identified

Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/neurodevelopment-generosity-child-psychology-1649/.

University of Chicago developmental neuroscientists have found specific brain markers that predict generosity in children. Those neural markers appear to be linked to both social and moral evaluation processes.

The research is in Current Biology. (full access paywall)

Research: “The Neuroscience of Implicit Moral Evaluation and Its Relation to Generosity in Early Childhood” by Jason M. Cowell and Jean Decety in Current Biology. doi:10.1016/j.cub.2014.11.002 (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2014.11.002)
