Altruism On The Brain – It’s Scientific

Hartford York Hats for Men and Women - Men's Winter Hat - Men's Stetson Trooper Cap - The HunterHere’s some terrifying news for you from those in the know at Medical News Today: Brain Scan Predicts Difference Between Altruistic And Selfish People.

Seems that a procedure called “functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scans [the brain] to detect activity in nerve cells . . . by measuring changes in oxygen levels.”

So what I’m really reading here is that next time I go in to my local Mensa meeting (we scan each other all the time) or the Neurology Dept downtown (they’re interested in me, you know), I might possibly hear some snickering and a few choice phrases like “easy touch” and “can’t resist”.

Nothing’s sacred, anymore, people. Now there’s a way to SCIENTIFICALLY PROVE just how generous and wonderful I really am. (How embarrassing)

Thanks for reading,
Steve Singer
