Date: Saturday, March 2, 2019 | Time: 10 a.m.
From politicians to self-help gurus, the concepts of empathy, fairness, and morality have become pleas that all too often are invoked, and are misunderstood. We are confronted with the notion that understanding the plight of others, or even feeling concern for the state of another will necessarily mean that we will act more morally towards them. However, a growing body of research from child psychology and neuroscience suggests that these are relatively separate processes. In this talk, I will discuss the neural, cultural, and behavioral development of morality and empathy in children, adolescents, and adults. I will also highlight the current attempts at intervening and increasing empathy, morality, respect and preferences for equality versus equity.
Dr. Cowell studies the neural development of moral judgment, moral action, theory of mind, empathy, self-control, and prosocial behavior in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. He uses electroencephalography, functional neuroimaging, psychophysiological measures, eye-tracking, and behavioral paradigms to investigate the complexities of developing morality and self-control in the U.S. and cross-culturally. His current studies focus on the role of empathic concern and perspective-taking in developing ideas of fairness and equality and their related neurobiological underpinnings. Dr. Cowell is excited to work with students in research assistantships and independent studies.
