Sacred values prompt greater activation of an area of the brain associated with rules-based, right-or-wrong thought processes, the study showed, as opposed to the regions linked to processing of costs-versus-benefits.

120124 The Price of One's Soul
Some of my values have changed suddenly, such as discovering what is really important during a crisis. Other values have evolved, such as taking twenty years (1977 to 1997) to change completely from loud environmental advocate to one who has almost total disbelief in their hysterical prognostications - especially as concerns Global Warming/Climate Change.
One set of values will not change, even under the threat of torture and death. It is so deep inside me, it cannot be removed. This would be that one thing that would activate the neural systems associated with evaluating rights and wrongs. It amazes me what people study: “The Price of Your Soul”.
