Laboratory of Brain and Cognition, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA
Psychol Sci 18:469-74. 2007..Although observing and imagining the moving shapes engaged the mirror system, only activation of the social network was modulated by animacy...

- Is morality unified? Evidence that distinct neural systems underlie moral judgments of harm, dishonesty, and disgustCarolyn Parkinson
Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755, USA
J Cogn Neurosci 23:3162-80. 2011..These results suggest that moral judgment is not a wholly unified faculty in the human brain, but rather, instantiated in dissociable neural systems that are engaged differentially depending on the type of transgression being judged...

Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Dartmouth College, HB 6207 Moore Hall, Hanover, NH, 03755, USA
Exp Brain Res 229:329-35. 2013..This conclusion has significant implications for our understanding of the neural basis of motor action and potentially for arguments about free will and the causal role of consciousness. ..
