Action and Inter-actions

Daily individual’s experiences are governed by constant feedback received from the external environment with which individuals continuously act and interact. The themes of action and interaction are therefore central in neuroscience and neuropsychology researches. However, how is it possible to fully understand social interactions, agents involved and the different types of actions carried out? This answer is provided by neurosciences that deal with observing neural networks and cortical and subcortical structures that underlie social actions and interactions. One of the most requested and difficult individual’s action is decision making that requires the implementation of moral actions. Several factors, indeed, are involved in moral decision-making such as religious beliefs, personal values, and logical reasoning. Neurosciences, in particular, are interested in brain and body reactions when individuals make a moral decision.
