Policy is one of the most complex areas of human thought. So I felt a doubt of course when I heard allegations that examine the human brain may help in predicting the knowledge of his policy choices. Still brain science is making progress and reveal insights unusual, but determine what you can measure it across the scanner for human interactions social considered a major breakthrough in this area, such as trying to uncover the relationship between the two dishes of dishes gravy, one of vegetables, pasta, meat and other extract some ideas for economy, equality and history. But psychologists and nerves in both the United States and Britain are conducting studies of the utmost importance to link the political attitudes and what is going on inside our skulls.

He says Darren Schreiber, a professor at the University of Exeter: "Given how to address the political phenomena of the brain that we can better understand why we are what we do."Schreiber began in the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) during his stay in the United States, to discuss the patterns of activity in the brain while people take their own decisions, especially those that involve some risk. While their decisions were not significantly different, he saw Dr. Schreiber variation in the parts of the brain that were most active in the self-described conservatives and those who call themselves liberals. Will circulate a professor at the University of Exeter thinking how conservatives and liberals exactly, but he believes that his research says that the different views reflect a deep-rooted variation in how to understand the world. It seemed Montego Reid, a professor at University College London and the University of Virginia Tech, was skeptical when he offered to help political scientists in their research.

Montego adds: "mocked them, and went out of the room," but when I showed John Chisholm and his team at the University of Nebraska, his statements that their findings began to change his tune.

Genetic differences

The findings of research conducted on twins to be that political loyalty in parts of it genetically. This may not be the same accuracy political loyalty along twin, for example, but it is enough to recall that some trends are the province to the maximum extent or exist within the DNA. But how exactly can the genetic differences that are embodied in the political differences on the ground?

It expresses Professors Chisholm and Montgao expressed their desire to know whether these tendencies can be seen in the work of fungal brain. Therefore, the scientists tested some spontaneous reactions to images designed to provoke fear and disgust, and said that there is a relationship between the force feedback of the images and the views of potential for someone socially conservative. Chisholm says: "We need to clarify the difference between conservative and economic trends among conservative social attitudes."

He added: "People who have the views of the more conservative on some issues, such as immigration, and who are more eager to punish criminals, and those who oppose abortion ... these are seem to have reacted much stronger towards the erotic images disgusting."And measured these reactions biologically, so the research linking views between the conscious and explicit reactions that stem from the subconscious. This includes research conducted so far reactions to danger, disgust, fear, and that show the strongest links to the political views explicit.

But, it appeared Anmaholh difficult to apply these insights in certain situations. It may be social conservatives in the United States strongly in favor of the idea of ​​creating a small state and a more liberal market. In the countries of the former Eastern Bloc, social trends may make you more Agbh to return to the old days of communism. And warns the world of behavioral economics, Liam Delaney, who is now studying the psychological aspect of the campaign a referendum on independence in Scotland, from the belief that the instincts of our subconscious mind can be a complete guide to this discussion.

Delaney says: "biological determinism is somewhat difficult with these cases, because there is considerable variation between the very different political systems."And agrees Schreiber previous view that "the political humanitarian very complicated, not only limited to the mind., And I want to be very clear that I am not in a follower of biological determinism., We are firm and do not have to be steadfast."He continues: "If people are very simple, you will not need to drain this large and complex."No one claims of scientists involved in this study that our views are completely spontaneous political. Valacol human change over our lives, so neuroscientists are keen to say that our experiences, as well as our genes, as long as the form in which the brain that pass these tests.

"Left-leaning"

 

But John Chisholm believed that unconscious motives and that evolved long ago in response to the risk of physical, political orientation of our thinking than we like to believe. And compares between Hibbing and spontaneous tendencies Aloadalogih between any hands prefer to use. We have become accustomed to think as though they were usually can be changed, but we now know it "is rooted in biology."Therefore, it effects of extreme political life. If a person tends to be left-leaning as much spontaneity in the use of his left hand, so why all this inconvenience in the political side? Can we put everyone in a brain scanner, and infer what they are thinking, and whether they will continue to think about, whether they were born to think, and stop trying to change the way of thinking of anyone?

I felt relieved when I found that even John Chisholm himself did not reach this conclusion."It is no exaggeration that I thought that people should shut up and accept according to some people., But I think that they have to accept that some people either they will not change, or that it is difficult for them too that they change, and that the continuation of our screams in their faces would not change a thing. "Therefore, we will not be in the heart of the picture any time soon. This is a good thing, because I still think that it should be the task of the policy is directed by our thoughts of our skulls to the real world, the real world is full of beliefs that are challenging and conflicting views. Perhaps I will be rigid in my thinking in this way.
