Human personality consists of two fundamental elements character and temperament. Character allays automatic and preconceptual emotional responses determined by temperament. However, the neurobiological basis of character and its interplay with temperament remain elusive. Here, we examined character-temperament interplay and explored the neural basis of character, with a particular focus on the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex extending to a ventromedial portion of the prefrontal cortex (sgACC/vmPFC).

Patricia Churchland: Making Waves - Dana Foundation

Patricia Churchland: Making Waves - Dana Foundation | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it
 By incorporating neuroscience into philosophy, Patricia Churchland has undermined several staples of Philosophy 101.

The thinking of Descartes, for example, who believed the soul was responsible for all mental functions, has been rendered quaint by research showing that the self—whatever it is—clearly emerges from the physical brain. Churchland’s most recent book,Touching a Nerve, is subtitled The Self as Brain, and visits some of the evidence that all of our emotions, thoughts, memories, and behavior spring from neural activity and nothing but—no soul required.
