Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


Moral decision-making is a complex process composed of different decisional systems supported by controlled, automatic, cognitive, and emotional processes. Specifically, moral decision-making regards the evaluation of the possible consequences, implications, and acceptability of our own decisions on others' behavior. Neuroscience, thanks to the use of new and innovative methods, has allowed investigating the implicit and explicit correlates underlying moral decision-making in different contexts, such as the organizational one. Especially within the organizational context, neuroscience has proved useful for investigating the cerebral and peripheral mechanisms underlying the moral decision process through the use of classical paradigms consisting of monetary choices and social decision tasks. Therefore, the use of neuroscience in the investigation of company moral behavior has allowed highlighting the brain areas most involved in moral judgment and the analysis of decisions' costs and benefits and the bodily responses associated with decisions more engaging for individuals.
