Jorge Moll: the future of Neuroscience research

A group of scientific researchers who used a mix of brain scanning methods and outdated techniques revealed how helpful the technique was in assisting people pivot their emotions dealing with endearment as well as empathy. They also helped in boosting those emotions.

This research was done for the purpose of finding means of treating patients suffering from mental disorders including postpartum disorders. The research is said to also assist in the case of patients suffering from autism or patients who are psychopathic. The scientists reveal their research is the only of its kind that maps complex feelings and emotions that deal with empathy in the human brain.

Jorge Moll revealed that other groups of scientists only put their focus on emotions that relate to singular points or regions of the brain. He reveals in order to get complex emotions like empathy then it is imperative to analyze many different regions of the brain at once. He goes ahead further and reveals their main agenda was to research on the emotions that make a person perform altruistic events, therefore be better people than they were before. Once the individual realizes this emotion, he would then be allowed to work this emotion.

Jorge Moll is the founder, current president as well as director and a member of the board of governance in IDOR, the D’Or Institute for Research & Education. The facility is based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He is also among the main researchers in IDOR. He also leads the department in IDOR called Cognitive Neuroscience Unit & Neuroinformatics Workgroup.

Jorge Moll graduated in the field of medicine in 1994. He pursued this course in UFRJ, the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He did his residency under Neurology at the same institution of learning in the year 1998. He acquired his Ph.D. from the Sao Paulo University Medical School under Experimental Pathophysiology. This was in 2004.

Jorge Moll is also a partner at VHM Ventures (LinkedIn). This is a Venture Capital Fun based in Silicon Valley.

Jorge Moll has received numerous awards as well as distinctions including he received the Research Fellow NIH award as well as a Visiting Scholar Award from the Stanford Neuroscience Institute at Stanford University.
