According to researchers from Oxford University, in the human brain is a department, responsible for conscience. This conclusion the researchers made after a study involving 25 men and women. In this study, researchers wanted to determine whether conscience is purely psychological concept or a clear position in the cortex.
After a research with magnetic resonance was obtained an information about the prefrontal areas of the human brain. A part of the brain that is responsible for conscience was localized by comparison of the human brain and the brain of a primate, since they are almost identical. But in the primate there is no part of the brain that is responsible for consciousness. Thus the researchers concluded that people have a conscience, but in animals it is missing.
The section responsible for the human conscience, is located behind the eyebrows. This small but dense spherical tissue causes people to evaluate their actions and to classify them as good and bad.
