473. Dehumanization Shown By Brain Scanning
"But it may be that a person can become callous enough to commit human atrocities because of a failure in the part of the brain that's critical for social interaction."
"The result is what the researchers call "dehumanized perception," or failing to consider someone else's mind. Such a lack of empathy toward others can also help explain why some members of society are sometimes dehumanized, they said."
The differences between the perception of valued and of dehumanized persons was shown in this study by a MRI scanner. Now I am wondering, if this study has shown the representation of the ingroup-outgroup instinct by conscious attitude?
