Do you Know about?

Beware, Magnets can confuse your brain.

Scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have found a way to switch off your sense of right and wrong, by using magnets.

Scientist first asked a group of volunteers to rate actions on a scale from one (morally forbidden) to seven (permissible), the journal Proceedings of the US National Science Academy reports.

Each subject was then asked similar questions while transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was being applied to their brain's right temporoparietal junction (RTPJ).

The researchers, led by Liane Young from MIT, found that participants were less likely to believe something that harms another is wrong, according to the Daily Mail.

It means that one day it may be possible to control people's sense of morality and convince them to things they otherwise wouldn't.

Researchers found that they could not switch off your morality sensors altogether - but they could drastically alter what you believe to be permissible.
