    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Cogn Sci 36:163-77. 2012
    ..These factors interacted in a manner consistent with moral reasoning: A strong argument defending the incestuous behavior was more persuasive than a weak argument, but only when increased deliberation time encouraged subjects to reflect...

    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, 33 Kirkland St, Cambridge, MA 02138, United States
    Cognition 107:1144-54. 2008
    ..This interference effect provides direct evidence for the influence of controlled cognitive processes in moral judgment, and utilitarian moral judgment more specifically...

    Joshua D Greene
    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Cognition 111:364-71. 2009

    Amitai Shenhav
    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, 33 Kirkland Street, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Neuron 67:667-77. 2010
    ..The present results suggest that complex life-and-death moral decisions that affect others depend on neural circuitry adapted for more basic, self-interested decision making involving material rewards...

    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, 33 Kirkland Street, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    J Exp Psychol Gen 141:423-8. 2012
