Summary: Study reveals liberals and conservatives feel certain violations of moral concerns, such as loyalty and purity, in different areas of their bodies. Researchers with USC’s Brain and Creativity Institute set out to examine how and where emotions associated with violations of moral concerns are experienced in the body, and whether political orientation plays a role. Our study finds that liberals and conservatives feel moral violations in different areas of their bodies, interpret them as distinct complex feelings and make different moral and political judgments,” said Morteza Dehghani, assistant professor of psychology and computer science at the Brain and Creativity Institute and the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
