With the ongoing growth and development of many scientific fields, Neurology and Neuroscience are by far a couple among many disciplines surrounded by curiosity as all human beings possess a direct first-hand experience with the concepts presented concerning human behavior, cognitive functions, and influences. The topics included in Jorge Moll publications are likely to be considered rather intriguing by the common reader due to the gap that is bridged between socially understood complexes of human behavior and moral emotions to the lesser known neurological correlations and neuroscientific perspective. As briefly stated in the description of Jorge Moll’s Functional Networks in Emotional Moral and Nonmoral Social Judgements (2002) web article publication, “Reading daily newspaper articles often evokes opinions and social judgments about the characters and stories” which provides an in-depth analysis of thought processes involved in a socially common practice to which the audience would likely be otherwise oblivious.

The article description further states that “Social and moral judgments rely on the proper functioning of neural circuits concerned with complex cognitive and emotional processes” which further supports the idea and development of neuroscientific correlations and entailment in daily activity. A couple of Jorge Moll’s other publications are Feelings of Shame, Embarrassment and Guilt and their Neural Correlates: A Systematic Review (2016) and The Neural Basis of Moral Cognition (2008) Besides being elected governors board member of the International Neuroethics Society (2012-2013) Visiting Scholar Award, Jorge Moll has acquired other notable accolades and awards such as the DiOr Institute for Research and Education Awards and distinctions, Research Fellow NIH Award (2004), and his being elected as affiliate member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences (2008).
