Dr. Jorge Moll has always been interested in the altruistic emotions of humans and the drive that leads them to make certain decisions. One of the first remarkable studies that Dr. Moll came out was meant to understand the deeper connections that human brains exhibit when trying to make decisions that revolve around any kind of charitable giving or philanthropic work. This was a study that would soon pave the way for all of the future researchers that Dr. Moll would move on to carry out.
The first study that Dr. Moll carried out was with a group of volunteers who agreed to answer questions while images of their brain were being taken. This was done to understand the part of the brain that was being used when a person was asked a particular type of question or made to think about a specific thing. Most of the questions in this study were regarding money and giving it away to the needy, which went on to shed light on the part of the brain that was involved with thoughts of charitable giving.
One of the more recent studies that Dr. Moll conducted was to understand the loyalty that fans feel towards sporting teams that they support. This was not something that had ever been done before, even though it is one of the most common phenomena. This time, people were asked questions about how they would help their teams and improve them. Just like the previous study, this one too entailed taking detailed image maps of the participants’ brains to understand which part of the brain is responsible for these feelings of loyalty that the fans experience.
A lot of the research that Dr. Moll conducts is considered to be essential towards understanding the implications of human behavior. The work that he has done is considered to be inspiring for others, which is why he has become such a well-reputed name in the field. Currently, Dr. Jorge Moll serves as an essential leader to the D’Or Institute of Research and Education. Dr. Moll stands as the President of this institute and has implemented some developments that have worked for the benefit of its workings.
