An advocate for supremacy of the brain

Behaviors are sensitive to brain changing materials!

In a study of humans playing a cooperative game involving money, researchers recently discovered that they could make subjects more generous by spraying the hormone oxytocin into their noses.

Paul Zak, a neuro-economist at Claremont Graduate University in Southern California, concluded that oxytocin makes people more trusting and essentially creates “the feeling of right and wrong” in the brain. Zak is writing a book called The Moral Molecule.
