With science feverishly studying everything our brain is capable of, we are finding many of the results challenging what we previously thought about our self. Take for example a recent discovery that our moral compass in life is as steady as the electromagnetic field applied to that area of the brain where they are stored. According to Liane Young, lead author of the research at MIT:
"You think of morality as being a really high-level behavior," she says. "To be able to apply (a magnetic field) to a specific brain region and change people's moral judgments is really astonishing."
