Republicans and Democrats are just two sides of the same coin. It is all smoke and mirrors to control every sector of populace. The truth is that each side needs to lose their hate and work together. Democrats need the Republican organization abilities while Republicans need Democrats enthusiasm and heart. An America working together again, that I would like to see! [/quote] It may not be possible for some Republicans to get the heart, due to certain lacking brain cells. We'll have to wait for science to investigate whether the presence or lack of these brain cells accounts for the fundamental differences in political ideologies. ---------------- Article: [b]Found: Altruism Brain Cells[/b] Brain cells that fire only when monkeys act unselfishly may provide clues to the neural basis of altruism, according to a new study. In the study, the cells fire in rhesus monkeys when they gave juice away, but not when they received it. The findings, published Dec. 23 in the journal Nature Neuroscience, may shed light on why many animals (including humans) exhibit kind, unselfish behavior that doesn't directly benefit them. The new findings provide a "complete picture of the neuronal activity underlying a key aspect of social cognition," Matthew Rushworth, a neuroscientist at Oxford who was not involved in the study, wrote in an email."It is definitely a major achievement." Do-gooder impulse Why animals act unselfishly has been a longstanding mystery. Yet they routinely do: Monkeys will go without food rather than shock compatriots, and mice will also starve rather than hurt friends. This primitive do-gooder impulse in animals may have evolved into the altruism we see in humans today, said study co-author Michael Platt, a neuroscientist at Duke University. But understanding how altruism works in the brain has been trickier. When people do something unselfish such as give to charity, reward circuits that usually fire when eating chocolate or doing something pleasurable are activated, Platt told LiveScience. Clearly, though, people feel a difference between doing good for themselves and being kind to others. That raised the question of how the brain encodes unselfish, other-oriented acts separate from personal gain. ... http://www.livescience.com/25860-altruism-brain-cells-found.html [/quote]
