How magnets held to the head could switch off our sense of right and wrong

Scientists claim they have found a way to turn off our understanding of right and wrong – by using magnets.

When special kinds of magnets are held up to a person’s head they can disrupt the neural centre responsible for morality, tests showed.

A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology first asked 20 volunteers to rate actions on a scale from one (morally forbidden) to seven (permissible).

Each subject was then asked similar questions while transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was being applied to their brain’s right temporoparietal junction (RTPJ).

The researchers, led by Professor Liane Young, found that participants undergoing the process were less likely to believe something that causes harm to another is wrong.
